Abstract

Meaning change refers to the changes of word meaning that replace the original meaning. In film making terms, many meaning change has occured that makes the meaning of word may become broader, narrower, positive or negative. This research is aimed to identify the meaning change of words used in film making terms and factors facilitating its meaning change. In addition, the researcher also differentiates the conceptual meaning and the new meaning of words in film making terms. In this research, the researcher applies descriptive qualitative method fom Isaac and Michael (1971:42), in order to explain the result of the research. The componential meaning analysis from Palmer (1981:111) is used to figure out the characteristic of word. The data of the analysis are all words of the film making terms obtained from Kamus Istilah Film Populer by Nisrina Lubis (2009). In collecting data, the researcher uses documentation method from Arikunto (1983:18), because the data are taken from printed media. The method of collecting data was continued by applying a note taking technique from Sudaryanto to classify the data. In addition, the purposive sampling is used because the samples taken randomly from the population according to particular criteria based on purpose of the research. The result shows four types of meaning change occured in film making terms, that are, generalization, specialization, pejoration, and amelioration. The researcher concludes that generalization and specialization are the common types of meaning change because the majority of word in film making terms have neutral sense and do not includes as a methapor, so words do undergo two types of meaning. In addition, the discussion on the factors facilitating the meaning change shows that there are five factors that generates the meaning change, they are scientific words, needs new meaning, taboo, vagueness in meaning, and loss of motivation because they represent all factors that is mentioned by Palmer’theory and Ulmann’theory.
