This research aimed to observe the use of artificial language in the family of Rina Kurnia, a resident of the Cendana Mata Air Padang housing complex. The language used by this family seems unique because only this family uses artificial language. Meanwhile, their neighbors do not understand the meaning of the language they speak. From the qualitative approach the researchers used, they found the use of artificial language since their parents were still alive. But unfortunately, this artificial language is no longer passed on to their children and grandchildren. This research stated that anything in the world must have the same characteristics. Among these characteristics are arbitrary, creative, and dynamic. As a known, manifestation consists of common languages and artificial languages. Common languages are also known as natural language, colloquial language, or non-cognitive language. Artificial language is synonymous with scientific language, language science and cognitive language. General language is characterized by emotional, evaluative, ambiguous, and prejudiced/contextual. In contrast, artificial language, closed to facts, meaningful constants, single definition, and non-personal. Collecting data was done byusing observation or listening methods, structured interviews, and qualitative descriptive in-depth interviews. Qualitative analysis was done by means of categorical analysis followed by a theoretical meaning and inference. The results of this study indicate a shift in the mother tongue in the household realm.
