Abstract
Speakers have used Javanese in various places outside the area of use both in areas located on the island of Java and some islands in Indonesia and abroad. Javanese used in Cirebon called Cerbon Language or Crebon Language. This naming is because Javanese speakers in Cirebon feel that Cerbon Language is different from the Javanese used in the regions of their use, namely Yogyakarta and Surakarta. Why do Javanese teak speakers in Cirebon think differently? This study aims to investigate differences in Javanese in Cirebon from Javanese in its area of use. This research includes field research with a qualitative approach and synchronous review. The linguistic elements targeted are the words available in Swadesh’s basic vocabulary and basic culture words. The informant used as a source of data. Research data captured through field research. Javanese in Cirebon shows the difference with Javanese in its area of use, because (1) lexical and phonological variations of the use of standard Javanese vocabulary are found, (2) Javanese vocabulary in Cirebon is not found in Javanese in its area of use, (3) the pronunciation of the open vowel phoneme /a/ at the end of the word is sounded as [a], (4) it is found that the use of grammatical high task words causes Javanese in Cirebon is not easily understood by teak speakers from its area of use. The word grammatical can be a marker of Javanese identity speakers in Cirebon, (5) two types of speech levels are found, namely padinan and bebasan.
