This article discusses the categorization of emotion verbs in bahasa Indonesia. As the analytical tools,semantic primes from the theory of Natural Semantic Metalanguage were used. The research data werecollected through observation and interview methods. The data were analyzed using identity anddistribution methods and the results of data analysis were formally and informally presented. The resultshowed that emotion verbs can be divided into stative emotion verbs (SEV) characterized by [-controlled,-volition] and active emotion verbs (AEV) characterized by [+controlled, +volition]. The SEV scenario is‘X felt something, NOT BECAUSE X WANTED IT’ and the AEV scenario is ‘X felt something BECAUSE X WASSAYING TO HIM/HERSELF THINGS WHICH COULD CAUSE ONE TO FEEL IT’. Furthermore, SEV is divided intosubcategories: (1) ‘something bad happened’ (SEDIH, SAD), (2) ‘something bad can/will happen’ (TAKUT, FEAR), (3) ‘people can think something bad about me’ (MALU, SHAME), and (4) ‘I do not think that thingslike this can/will happen’ (HERAN, AMAZED). AEV is divided into subcategories: (1) ’something goodhappened’ (SENANG, HAPPY), (2) ‘I think about something’ (SANGSI, DOUBT), (3) ‘I did something bad’(MENYESAL, REMORSE), (4) ‘I think about someone else’ (CINTA, LOVE), and (5) ‘I do not want things likethis to happen) (MARAH, ANGRY).
