Abstract

From the sociolinguistic and anthropological linguistics’ perspective, it has been claimed that every country, region, society, and people has its/their own culture, tradition, and roles. These factors are systems. One of these systems is the Indonesian kinship system and structure of the Indonesian culture. This is a descriptive anthropological linguistic study aims to revel explicitly the semantic factors of the kinship terminologies of the Indonesian Baduy using the interview and observation techniques for obtaining the data. Hence, the data has been collected in the field, the study follows the steps recommended by the field linguistic research, namely recording the data, decoding the data, transcribing the data, analyzing the data, and writing the results. The study reveals that the kinship system is linearly structured and has terms that indicate the generation systematic structure. Semantically, there are two factors have been identified from the analysis of the data obtained from the field. One of these factors is regarding the generation system where each kinship term refers to a specific generation with a notable exception in the UP system in which there is a kinship term stands for three generations respectively. The other factor is regarding the kinship terms that refers to the ‘sex’ kinship terminologies in which one term stands for both masculine and feminine.
