Abstract
This study aims to (1) identify and inventory the lexicon and (2) describe the ethnobotany classification and nomenclature system. The identification and inventory of lexicons are intended to determine the shape and number of lexicons of tubers in the Sasak language. The description of the ethnobotany classification and nomenclature system of tubers is intended to find out the ethnoscience of Sasak speakers in that domain. For this purpose, the taxonomic classification and ethnobiology nomenclature theory used developed by Berlin et al. (1973) and Berlin (1992). Meanwhile, data collection in this study was conducted by participatory observation and in-depth interviews. In addition, intuitively introspective, linguistic data that has been collected is reconstructed and classified so that it becomes an adequate data type, of course by triangulating sources/data. These data are analyzed using the componential analysis method. The results of this study indicate that the lexicons of tubers in the Sasak language at the level of generic taxa are numerous, whereas there are not many at specific taxa and varietal taxa. This correlates strongly with the important role (certain taxa) in the lives of the Sasak-speaking people. From a theoretical perspective, there is a discrepancy between the general rules of ethnobiological nomenclature (which was submitted by Berlin et al., 1973) and the data, which is related to labeling taxa varietal with secondary lexemes whose superordinate category is labeled with primary lexemes.
