Abstract

This paper tries to address the semantic typology of two Indonesian words berat and keras as words that function to intensify another word preceding. The thing to be analyzed is the semantic dimensions of Indonesian collocations involving the two words mentioned. It is necessary to understand the semantic nature of the two words, for there are some Indonesian collocations involving the two words which are syntactically and naturally acceptable in the standard Indonesian, yet they are hard to interpret semantically. Implying that the two words are components with which a communication process involving the two can runs smoothly, the entailment is to what extent the two words mean significantly to make the real intentions of Indonesian speakers get communicated well. From the data analyzed in this paper, it is found that there are two semantic typologies for the words berat and keras. Those two are positive, and negative. Those words have negative meaning when they collocate with something naturally unwanted. The word berat has positive meaning when it collocates with nominal deverbal involving reasoning processes. The word berat has negative meaning when it collocates with nominative agentive mostly involving physical dimensions. The word keras has positive meaning when it collocates with nominative agentive involving cognitive dimensions.
