Abstract

This research aimed at describing and analyzing the value of local wisdom in Javanese culture contained in Banyumas proverbs. This research was classified into a descriptive qualitative study with ethno-linguistic research approach as the information was carefully described and well analyzed. This research employed a single case study specifically conducted on one characteristic and one target (subject), that is, proverbs in Banyumas Regency. The research data were collected from several informants, and documents using direct participatory observation, interviews, and document analysis using purposive sampling technique. The results of the study showed that Javanese proverbs reflecting behaviors symbolized by the puppet character of Bawor include patient in accepting fate (sabar, nerima), noble (ksatria), agile (cekatan), and frankly speaking (cablaka).
