- This paper aims to identify the structure of Patani Malay Dialect or Dialek Melayu Patani (DMP). The data were obtained through interviews with 20 informants consisting of 10 informants from Nad Kubur Village, Khautoom District, Yarang Regency, Pattani Province, and 10 informants from Hua Saphan Sateng Village, Muang Regency, Yala Province. This analysis used the autosegmental theory based on the Clements’ (1985) Syllables Representation and the Zaharani and Teoh Boon Seong’s (2006) Syllable Structure. A qualitative approach was used in this study. The findings of the study indicate that many structures of the DMP syllables found in previous studies were incongruent. Most previous researchers have concluded that the DMP had several syllable structures that were not in line with each other. This paper shows that the structure of the DMP syllables belongs to type III, the KV (K) syllable pattern, the KV and KKV open syllables, and the KVK closed syllables consisting of KVK, KV.KVK and KVK.KV.
