Abstract

Ponorogo as one of the ethnic in East Java has a uniqueness that is not owned by other regions. The uniqueness is located in the language “Bombongan” contained in Ponorogoreyog community. The language is usually used by the reyog community or warok with a specific purpose. In this article examine Sapir Whorf’s hypothesis against the language of Bombongan ethnic Panaragan, where between Language, Mindset and culture are closely related in a society. For example, the word Jegeg is the result of the mindset of the public associated with the behavior of warok over his prowess in the form of cultural practices in the art of reyog. In the language, it is the result of the actualized mindset into language and culture, so that the three relationships are closely related.
