or local words to express their ideas. Such use would then spread out among the
Indonesian speakers. To avoid it, Indonesian terminology was compiled but
unfortunately it was not known yet by the Indonesian speakers. It resulted in the
vast use of foreign words by the people. This article aims at describing the role of
the media in introducing new words to the society using descriptive qualitative
method and collecting data via literatur study. It showed that the media had a
significant role in socializing Indonesian terminology.
