Abstract
This research was intended to analyze the sociolinguistic phenomenon in Ampenan communities. This research focused on what types of swearwords Ampenan communities used to use, in what context they do swearing and the implication in their social relationship within the communities. This study uses a qualitative descriptive method followed by ethnography analysis where the data of this study were gathered through the observation and descriptive analysis of the transcript conversation of Ampenan communities taken from tape-recording. This research found out that swearing could be divided into several types such as Animal references, Sexual references, Religious profane, scatological or disgusting object, and personal background in various contexts. Moreover, this study discovered that swearwords were linked with solidarity and social relationship among interlocutors from different ethnics in Ampenan communities who share the same meaning and understanding among others. Furthermore, this research hoped to be beneficial for the reader in giving some understandings and new horizon about swearwords in multicultural communities.
