I. TITLE OF THE RESEARCH

The title of this research is Morphological Processes in Naming the Product of Konimex

Pharmaceutical Laboratories

II. FIELD OF THE STUDY

The field of the study of this research is linguistics.

III. INTRODUCTION

In naming the product, especially drugs, the producer of its product use a combination

between two words or more to form a name of their products. The combination of the word used

in naming the product usually consist of two names of the name cut and then combine together

to form a new name. Here what will the writer monitors is the morphological process used by

Konimex Pharmaceutical Laboratories. This company was established in Solo at 8 June 1967 by

Indonesian Entrepreneur of the Year 2003 from Ernst & Young, Djoenaedi Joesoef.

New-word formation in morphological process can be formed by compounding words.

According Andrew Carstairs-McCarthy (2002) compounds that is words formed by combining

roots, and the much smaller category of phrasal words. Compound words can be classified into

3:

1. Compound verb

Verb–verb (VV): stir-fry, freeze-dry

Noun–verb (NV): hand-wash, air-condition, steam-clean

Adjective–verb (AV): dry-clean, whitewash

Preposition–verb (PV): underestimate, outrun, overcook


2. Compound adjective

Noun–adjective (NA): sky-high, coal-black, oil-rich

Adjective–adjective (AA): grey-green, squeaky-clean, red-hot

Preposition–adjective (PA): underfull, overactive

3. Compound noun

Verb–noun (VN): swearword, drophammer, playtime

Noun–noun (NN): hairnet, mosquito net, butterfly net, hair restorer

Adjective–noun (AN): blackboard, greenstone, faintheart

Preposition–noun (PN): in-group, outpost, overcoat

The kind of compounding is blending. Andrew Carstairs-McCarthy (2002) blending is a

kind of compound where at least one component is reproduced only partially. For example smog,

blended from smoke and fog. Here two words are used partially and combine together. The kind

of blending is acronyms Andrew Carstairs-McCarthy (2002) kind of truncation that a component

of a blend can undergo is reduction to just one sound (or letter), usually the first. For example are

NATO (for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation), ANZAC (for Australian and New Zealand Army

Corps), RAM (for random access memory), SCSI (pronounced scuzzy, from small computer

systems interface), and AIDS (from acquired immune deficiency syndrome). Hudson explains

specifically, he said that for example identified six. In four of these, old meanings are given new

forms (clipping, blending, acronyming and word cutting). In two, new meanings are given new

forms (inventions and borrowing). Commonly drugs producer uses blending to form name their

product.
IV. RESEARCH QUESTIONS

The terms are going to be analyzed are:

1. What kinds of morphological process used in the process of product naming by

Konimex Pharmaceutical Laboratories?

2. What words are used in product naming by Konimex Pharmaceutical

Laboratories?

3. What kinds of morphological process are frequently used in product naming by

Konimex Pharmaceutical Laboratories?

V. RESEARCH PURPOSES

The purposes of this research are:

1. To find the kinds of morphological process used in the process of product naming by

Konimex Pharmaceutical Laboratories?

2. To find the words are used in product naming by Konimex Pharmaceutical Laboratories?

3. To find the kinds of morphological process are frequently used in product naming by

Konimex Pharmaceutical Laboratories?

VI. RESEARCH METHODOLOGY

The methodology used in this research is descriptive analysis. According to

Alwasilah (2003:67) descriptive analysis is method that simplifies a theory and analysis

based on research mechanism on the parts and also the correlation between those parts. Using

descriptive analysis, the writer needs accurate interpretation in processing data. According to

Fatimah (2006:9) descriptive research method is method that intends to make a description
systematically, exactly and accurately on the data, typical, and association between

phenomena. Furthermore, according Budiman (1998:10) is a method not only to do the pure

descriptive, but also to find the relation, to determine the meaning, and to make the

conclusion (implementation).

In collecting and analyzing the data, he uses several steps. The first step is he collects

the name of the product from PT. Konimex pharmaceutical laboratories. In collecting the

name, he takes the name directly from the manufacturer to avoid inaccuracy. He takes only

the name of the drugs and vitamins produced by PT. Konimex pharmaceutical laboratories.

The second is he collects the words used to create the product name. It is needed to know

what exactly the words used in the name and to keep away from inaccuracy. The third is he

collects the words used to name the product with the name of the products and analyzes those

words one by one to know the morphological processes. After the names are analyzed, the

name then set aside in the table based on the kind of their morphological process. The last

step is he determines what kind of morphological process used frequently in the naming

process by calculating the percentage of each process of morphology.
