Abstract

Language changes occur slowly and almost unconsciously. Language changes will occur if the language-speaking community experiences changes in language usage. Vocabulary changes on the lexical level can be known through the loss of certain vocabulary, the growth of new vocabulary, and the survival of the old vocabulary with the change of pronunciation or sound. The phenomenon of language change can also occur in the Badui tribe areas because they speak in ancient Sundanese. In this study, researchers will compare the vocabulary of the Sundanese language in the Badui areas which are considered ancient with the Sundanese language vocabulary in Bandung Regency which is considered more modern. Therefore, the problem in this paper is how the change of vocabulary of Sundanese in the Badui tribe areas which is considered ancient and Sundanese language vocabulary in the area of Bandung is considered more modern. The purpose of this research is to show the change of vocabulary in Sundanese in Badui tribe areas and Bandung Regency areas. The data were obtained from the informants in 14 villages, transcribed, and then compared with the data of the Sundanese language vocabulary in Bandung Regency. The findings obtained that vocabulary changes in Bandung Regency and Badui tribe areas amounted to 142 vocabularies. The type of vocabulary change with the highest frequency is the vocabulary survived with the same pronunciation and the new growing grain, followed by the type of vocabulary persist with the same pronunciation and the lost words also vocabulary persist with the same pronunciation, the lost vocabulary, and the new vocabulary.
