Abstract

Indonesia is one of the countries which is rich with its culture including vernacular languages. One of those languages is Using language spoken by its speakers in Banyuwangi Regency, East Java, Indonesia. A lot of researches have done on this indigenous language, but it is still interesting to be conducted because of its declining use due to the domination of Bahasa Indonesia as a national language and lingua franca. This research aims to describe the diversity of the way of naming of entity references of fauna lexicons in Using language. The theory applied in this research is proposed by Evans (in Martinich, 1996: 247 and 271-283) in which he states that basically name is used for labeling human, place, things and so on which is definite because names given to entity references contain assumption of the person giving the name so the listeners can identify the references. To collect the data of the research, there are three methods used, namely documentation, observation, and interviews. The result of the study shows that there are 11 ways of naming on fauna. The naming of fauna are based on the characteristics of smell emitted, the method of locomotion, the method of self-protection, the method of moving, the physical similarities, the behavior similarities, the characteristic of sound emitted, the habitat, the place of searching for food, the size, and the color. It is expected that the results of the study can give contribution on how lexicons of Using language can be treated for its maintenance.
