Abstract

The purpose of this research is to describe slang words spoken by transgender community in Manado, to describe the meaning and how they form the slang words. This is a descriptive qualitative research. The data were taken from natural conversation among transgenders and the data taken were in the form of oral sentences. The source of data was transgender community in Manado city. The results of the study shows that transgender slang words are formed by borrowing words of foreign language or syllables of Indonesian language, using additional deviated words with specific affixes, or changing of phonemes or into other common words. Transgender community inserts the slang words into Manado Malay language using Manado Malay language structure to form their utterances. They sometimes use it as a secret code and show solidarity marker among their community.
