Abstract

This study aims to identify and describe the compounding in Kata Kolok, a sign language used in Bengkala Village, Buleleng, Bali. This descriptive qualitative study used a generative morphological approach as defined by Aronoff (1976) with his colleagues. Aronoff (2005) developed the theory applied to sign language morphology. This research was an experimental development in which the researcher attempted to find the phenomena of compounding, such as those in oral language, in Kata Kolok sign language. Data were video recordings of dialogs using Kata Kolok which were then converted into images and interpreted according to the images of the signs and the meaning signified. By using the corpora, compounding signs in Kata Kolok were discovered by using the regulations of the morphological compounding process as the indicator. The results of this study showed that some combinations of word-classes for sign-compoundings were found, namely a noun with a noun, a verb with a noun, a verb with a verb, noun with adjective and noun with a verb. These results may contribute to the documentation of Kata Kolok which in the future is attempted to materialize in the form of the Kata Kolok Dictionary.
