Abstract

People speak the Panasuan language in the northern part of Kalumpang District and the western part of Seko District, Mamuju Regency, West Sulawesi Province. The Panusuan language is distinct from the other languages spoken on West Sulawesi. This distinction exists in the semantic aspect, particularly in denotative and connotative meanings. The research aims to express the denotative and connotative meanings of Panasuan language. The technique used is descriptive-qualitative, with listening, engaging, and note-taking. Data analysis includes the steps of identifying, selecting, classifying, and presenting data. The findings revealed that the Panusuan language requires a figurative meaning other than what it currently has. Some figurative meanings are found in this research, and those figurative can have two meanings; it depends on the sentence that follows them. The findings of this study are significant in expanding the knowledge for observers of regional languages in the archipelago and one of the efforts to preserve regional languages in Indonesia.
