Abstract


Twitter is one of the media used by people to share their thoughts, to communicate, and to
respond to others. Since Twitter users tend to communicate using spoken language, we can
find some new words created in order to make the communication more comfortable.The
purpose of this study is to identify the word formation processes on twitter statuses of
Indonesian dangdut singers. This study uses Non-Participant Observation Method to collect
the data along with Reflective Introspective Identity and Translational Method to analyze the
data. The finding of this research shows 35 words from 11 twitter accounts that were analyzed
in terms of the process of word formation. The processes that occurred are Derivation,
Blending, Borrowing, Clipping and Acronym. Of these processes, borrowing is the most
common process of word formation found in the twitter statuses of dangdut singers because
the singers tend to follow trend from Western since the borrowing words are mostly from
English.
