Abstract

The Javanese traditional expression is one of the Javanese cultural heritage enriched by the value of the beauty of the language as well as the cultural local wisdom. The Javanese traditional expression generally contains the principle, guideline, and the value adhered by the Javanese community. Javanese community is known by its character of sinamun ing samudana meaning ‘hidden in figure of speech’ and tanggap ing sasmita meaning ‘responsive to signs’, so the Javanese expression mostly contains figure of speech, connotation, and the comparison form/metaphor. As a result, the meaning requires the process of understanding as well as in-depth interpretation. Therefore, the aims of this research are to identify as well as to understand the aspect of metaphor symbol used in the Javanese traditional expression, to find out the relation between metaphor symbol used in the meaning, and to determine the factor underlain the emergence of the expression forms in the community. This research employed ethnolinguistic approach investigating the relation between language and the culture in the society which is supported by other theories such as semantic and semiotic in accordance with the aspect of meaning. The result of the analysis is expected to give the explanation about the meaning of Javanese traditional expression. Thus, the value of cultural local wisdom is probed to keep preserving the sustainability of the Javanese verbal tradition
