Abstract 

     This research is about the affixation between English and Bataknese as reflected in Holy Bible. This research is focussed on similarities and differences between derivational or inflectional affixation in English and Bataknese. Affixation is the adding of bound morphemes to the base to base to form a word. The adding of the bound morphemes initially to a base is called prefixes, the adding of the bound morphemes inside the base is called infixes, while the combination of prefix and suffix which constructs a unity is named confixes and the adding of the bound morphemes to the end of base is called suffixes. There are two types of affixation derivational and inflectional. Derivational morpheme is a morpheme creating new words by changing either the meaning or the part of speech. Inflectional morphemes is a morpheme creating a different form of the same word by changing neither part of speech nor meaning, but only refines and give extra grammatical information about the already existing meaning of a word. In English, the percentage Inflectional affixation 123,75 % and Derivational affixation 13,75%. While, in Bataknese, the percentage Inflectional affixation 72,5 %  and Derivational affixation 26,25%.

Keywords : Affixation, Inflectional, derivational
