The Sumarorong language is one of the Toraja languages in the Mamasa Regency, it is assumed to have the same variety of Simbuang language in the Tana Toraja. The phenomenal thing about this language is found in the varied morphological patterns in the prefixation process. This study uses a morphological approach and data analysis is using qualitative descriptive. The results of the analysis found that the morphological patterns due to prefixation on verbs formed 12 morphological patterns, including variations of the active and passive verb. The character of prefix [u-] that binds verbs that start with a consonant causes the initial consonant to form a double consonant (cluster).
