Abstract

The research aims to examine the function and grammatical meaning of affix ma-, la-, na- found in the Dengka dialect. The study used a descriptive qualitative method and utilized the morphological theory by Katamba (1993). This theory was used to identify derivational affixes in the Dengka dialect, particularly to find out the function and grammatical meaning of affix ma-, la-, na-. Data were obtained by using the observation and interlocution method. The data were voice recordings taken from informants by interviewing and recording. The findings showed that the functions of affix ma-, la-, na- were to produce new words from the lexeme base in the Dengka dialect. The grammatical meaning of affix ma-when added to the lexeme base is ‘have or has’. Meanwhile, the grammatical meaning of affix la-, and na- when added to the lexeme base to describe a process is going on.
