Abstract

There are several studies that show the similarities between Negeri Sembilan and Minangkabau dialects, such as the phonological system and greetings. However, this paper attempts to compare the morphosyntax of both dialects. It is the assumption of this study that there is almost no comparative study on the morphosyntax that has been conducted on the dialects of Negeri Sembilan and Minangkabau. Therefore, it is the aim of this study to examine the grammatical categories of the Negeri Sembilan and Minangkabau dialects. In this study, the grammatical category consists of the morphological and the syntactical aspects. The morphological aspects focused on are affixation and determiner while for syntax the aspects focused on are possessive, pronouns and auxiliary. The research was conducted in Bukit Tinggi and Paya Kumbuh in Indonesia; and in the districts of Rembau and Kuala Pilah in Negeri Sembilan. The research samples are based on recordings of interviews conducted in the abovementioned areas. The recordings consist of conversations with 15 informants, representing both dialects studied. Data were transcribed by research assistants who are native speakers of both dialects. The data were also tested for their authenticity and validity, in terms of spelling and structure. The major findings are the use of prefix on nouns (perosak - parusak, kesudahannya - kasudahannyo, sesudah - sasudah), verbs (terjatuh - tajatuh, bersatu-basatu/bertigo-batigo, menyapu - manyapu); circumfix (meN-,,,-kan, such as mambarasiahan membersihkan), and possessive (punya, such as ‘Den punyo kodai’ - ‘Ambo punyo’/ ‘Punyo ambo) in Negeri Sembilan dialect are different from Minangkabau dialect. On the other hand, similarities were found in the use of pronouns (den, awak), auxiliary of verbs (sudah/bona, hendak, mau). As a conclusion, this study found that the Negeri Sembilan and Minangkabau dialect differ in terms of sound and lexical, but has similar grammatical system. This study contributes towards the understanding of grammatical categories of the two dialects that share similarities in terms of language and culture.
