Abstract

The central issue in this research is denominal verbs in Toba Batak language that is the formations of verbs from nominal bases through affixations and through lexical form. The morphological process occured in this kind of formation is derivational because it brings about new different word class from its base. In other words, derivational process produces different lexical identity and therefore, it has different lexical meaning. In Toba Batak language denominal verbs can be classified into nine categories, they are: (1) base-zero category, (2) base-hon category, (3) base-i category, (4) mar-base category, (5) mampar-base-hon category, (6) tar-base category, (7) tar-base-i category, (8) hona-base category, and (9) marsi-base-an category. In Toba Batak language it was found that the form of the nominal base and the form of the verb produced is the same in base-zero category. Therefore, the word class of the word will be known as noun or verb from sentence valency or from the context of the sentence where the words are used. For category (8) hona-base category, “hona”which means “suffer from” is a lexical form attached to bases to form new words as verbs. This category is very different from others in which other categories use affixes instead of lexical form. The new word formed can be transitive or it can be intransitive depends on the affixes attached.

Keywords : Denominal Verbs, Derivational Process, Nouns, Verbs.
