This paper examines tense and aspects markers in the Javanese dialect of Cirebon. This language is included Western Malayo-Polynesian, Austronesian, spoken in West Java, Indonesia. Varieties of Javanese display a wide range of variation not only in lexicon and pronunciation but also in various aspects markers. This paper identifies three aspect markers in Cirebon Javanese: wis, lagi, and arep. Aspect marker wis expresses Perfect Aspect and comes before Verb. Wis comes before Adjective. Besides, Wis cannot be a past tense or a perfective aspect marker. Lagi expresses Progressive and Past-Progressive. It cannot be a progressive aspect marker. Arep expresses Future, with differences between arep expressing will or be going to, and arep that expresses wish. Cirebon Javanese has a different vocabulary from other Javanese dialects. However, for aspect markers, Cirebon Javanese’s aspect markers are similar to standard Javanese’s aspect markers.
