Abstract
Rice is a staple food in Javanese culture. As a staple food, the concept of rice can develop according to its usage in Javanese culture. The development of the rice concept is related to (i) the type of side dish that accompanies it and (ii) how to cook it. The existence of this concept development has produced different names to the word of cooked rice, such as sega, sega gebuli, sega golong, sega kepyar, sega punar, sega wiwit, sega lemes, sega tumpeng, sega kenduren, sega megono, sega godog, etc. The wealth of concepts in the lexicon of a language (including Javanese) is necessary to be examined. The observation can serve to determine the accuracy in expressing a concept for communication. On the other hand, the appearance of the names of the cooked rice is related to Javanese cultural events. For this reason, this paper aims to discuss various terms relating to the word cooked rice (sega). The discussion uses a semantic and ethnolinguistic paradigm. The semantic theory used in this study is lexical semantics and intentional semantics. The ethnolinguistic paradigm is used to explain the cultural concepts contained in the names. In this relation, the method used is the semantic-ethnolinguistic description method. This discussion results in a description of various terms of the word sega (rice). The description is in the form of (a) a number of the combined terms of the word sega, (b) the meaning that arises from each word formation, and (c) the cultural relation to the word-formation concerned.
