Abstract

The purpose of this study is to express the lingual form and value of the positive and negative sense of the nickname of coastal communities in Pariaman, West Sumatra, Indonesia. The nickname is a lingual form used to refer to the physical and psychic existence of a given person. The issue of a nickname relates not only to the matter of the linguistic structure but also to the motivation of name selection, the aspects affecting the choice of names, the use in the life of society, the logic of thinking and the cultural behavior of the people in their selection and use. The nickname is a form of the name of self that is generally the name of the giving by the community to a person. This research data is nickname (nickname) of coastal Minangkabau community in Pariaman. The research informant was determined by snowball sampling technique. The stages of data analysis are (1) identification of nickname data based on the pattern of its formation, its reference, and the sense of positive-negative value, (2) the nickname classification based on the three research objectives, (3) nickname interpretation, and (4) inference. The research findings are nicknames (nicknames) consisting of two lingual forms namely (1) word-shaped and (2) phrase-shaped. The dominant nicknames are nicknames that have negative taste values such as Bulek, Baluik, Bontot, Ceke, Subuah, Karumuik, Piak Gulo, Am Jawi, Adit Juliang and few of which are of positive or neutral taste. Giving a nickname that is worth a negative taste to someone is one form of verbal violence committed by the community. Instead, giving and using negative nicknames should be eliminated in the life of the Minangkabau community.
