Abstract

People may use different language varieties when they talk to different people. They may also use some certain words in their certain community such as those of a discotheque community. Those words which are understood by their community members are called jargon words. People who are not from that group may not understand the jargon words. This study reveals the jargon words used in discotheques. It discusses the meanings, classification, and the word-formation process. The data are taken from three recorded conversations in the discotheques. In addition, the data are also taken from a list of jargon words that the writer knows. The data were transcribed and then analysed to find out the meanings of the jargon words. To validate the data, the writer interviewed five people in discotheques to check whether the meanings of jargon words the writer had collected were correct. The next step is that the writer analysed the discotheque-jargon word formation process. The results show that the meanings of jargon words have both connotative and denotative meanings. These jargon words are formed through six word-formation processes. First, it is formed through borrowing. 57.5 % of the words are borrowed from English, 17.5% from Chinese, 17.5% from Javanese and the rest are from Russian, Japanese and Arabic. The other discotheque jargon words are formed through blending, acronyms, prefixes, coinage, and multi processes.
