Abstract

The purposes of this article are to reveal and to discuss the characteristics and the patterns of Malay prepositions based on verb semantic structures. This article proposes that the verbs classes which share the same semantic structures have the similar relationship with the occurrence of the prepositions in the clause. In this article, the discussion of the relationship between the verbs and the presence of the prepositions is based on the notation and semantics concept of Role and Reference Grammar Theory - Van Valin and LaPolla (1997) and Van Valin (2005). Semantic representation in RRG is based on predicate representation, namely the verbs which are constructed by Aktionsart decomposition. Aktionsart is a lexical class to which a verb belongs by virtue of the type of process, state, and so forth, that it designates. Aktionsart class is divided into states, activities, achievements, accomplishment, active accomplishment, and a causative version of each of them. Representation for the Aktionsart decomposition class is called "Logical Structure" (LS). Three types of locative prepositions are scrutinized to examine the link, namely di, ke and dari. In this regard this article will reveal the LS of prepositions and also investigate how the occurrence of locative prepositions can be predicted and determined by the LS of Malay verbs. The data are amassed from two novels, namely Biuh and Noni.
