This research aims to apply semantic theory in analyzing the intent and meaning of information about the Corona Novel Virus or COVID-19 on social media in the case of spreading fake news or hoax. Predicative verbs that are studied include: 1) structure/construction of verbs in social media, 2) behavior of verbs, and (3) the meaning of verbs as predicates in sentences. The morphological processes of verbs studied in the case of spreading fake news are affixation, reduplication, and abbreviation that characterize the crime. The semantic scope of verbs studied in this law includes the use of verbs singly or in sequence, positive or negation, base and derivative, and original or translation/loan word/equivalent. This qualitative descriptive research was carried out for eight months, namely March-December 2020 with variables of the intent and meaning of information, as well as the morphological processes (affixation, reduplication, and abbreviation) contained in the utterance of criminal cases spreading fake news (hoax) about the Corona Novel Virus or COVID- 19. The data collection techniques carried out were: 1) the data provision stage, 2) the data analysis stage (with the equivalent method and the different method), and 3) the presentation of the results of the analysis of primary data in the form of verbs in speech which became the material for criminal cases of spreading fake news purposive sampling. This research shows that information on social media and potentially criminal to spread false news about Covid-19 can be classified as: 1) the characteristics of the corona virus, the source of the corona virus, distribution of corona, corona virus barriers, the corona cure, and the condition of the figure. The element of intent that is in what is said on social media and has the potential to be criminalized in spreading fake news about Covid-19 can be described as advise, confirming, and reporting.
