Abstract

This study aims to investigate the relation among human thought, language and culture in Pakpak Simsim language. This study tends to analyze the production of linguistic forms in human thought that are applied in Pakpak Simsim language as realized in their daily life and relate it to the culture existed. The findings show that the language used by Pakpaknese are influenced by the characters of the people. Syntax elements that are built by them during constructing sentences prove that they tend to be such objective person because the pattern they use is Verb-Subject-Object-Complement. This finding also implies that Pakpaknese is straight-forward people that only speak up to the pointly while having conversation with others.
