Abstract

Verbal phrases in Tagulandang dialect of Sangirese, can be observed by two types of constructions namely endocentric and exocentric constructions. Endocentric construction: i momo musamperi nakahengking daringihang, and balung kai malanighang mapia are verbal constructions in this local language bring about particular grammatical which need further analysis and discussion. This article, which is derived from a part of the results of a research entitled “Aspek Linguistic dalam Pembuatan Londe Masyarakat Tradisional Sangir” discusses the grammatical hirarchis of the tagmemes occure in the expressions used by Sangir people while they are making Londe. The main question as the basis of analysis and discussion presented in this paper is what are the types of construction used in Tagulandang dialect and the considerations that caused it to be called verbal. The analysis and discussion are to reveal and to explain the grammatical-structure of the constructions of the verbal phrases in this local language. The data and information presented in this paper were obtained through a library and linguistic field research. Nida’s criteria is also used in selecting the informants to be chosen. The research conducted in the subdistrict of Northern part of Tagulandang namely Minanga village, in 2017. The data is descriptively analyzed based on relevant theories of linguistic, especially the grammatical- structure dealing with types of construction and the function, forms and position of its constituents in verbal constructions. Based on the result of analyzing data found that verbal in Tagulandang dialect consisted of two types of phrases namely endocentric construction and exocentric construction. The verb in the construction can be accompanied by an adverb, or an adjective. The coordinative endocentric consists of the one using particle deng and that particle arako. The exocentric construction consists of that objective exocentric construction which indicates and act with direct object. In this construction the verb phrase followed by noun, preposition and noun, and functioned as subject, predicate, object and even complement as well.. It is hope that the description would provide more theories about linguistics as references for coming researcher who is interested in the related topic.
