SEMANTIC ROLE OF THE NAFRI LANGUAGE VERBS

Antonius Maturbongs

Abstract


THE Nafri language is one of the languages spoken in Jayapura City of Papua
Province with a moderate number of speakers. This writing describes semantic
roles in Nafri language (Nl), namely verbs of state, verbs of action, and verbs of
process. The data was analyzed using qualitative and descriptive methods. The
results showed that the semantic role of the verbs of state tended to feature the
state of physics and that of mind. The semantic roles of the verbs of action
represented the nature of actions, occurences, and movements. Meanwhile, that
of the verbs of process presented the regularity of movements and the regularity
of events. The semantic roles of those three verbs showed an interesting implication
that is an inherent correlation between the valencies of the verbs of state, the
verbs of action, and the verbs of process mainly on the first exponent.
