Music is not only something that a lot of people enjoy; for years it has been used for other purposes—express feelings, thoughts, personal opinions, and even messages. Sundanese people are not an exception to this. They employ poems in the form of songs songs to teach young generation about moral and cultural value. One of the types of the Sundanese songs taught to young children is pupuh Kinanti, which usually talks about waiting, worry and love. This study focuses on analyzing the diction of one of the famous pupuh Kinanti to understand how the semes are a part of an isotopy which contributes to the whole meaning of the text as well as how the presence of a word instead of the other gives effect to the whole pupuh. The study uses descriptive qualitative approach to examine the data by firstly doing thorough reading before choosing the words that fall into the same isotopy using Rastier’s semic analysis. The analysis shows that the poem, which consists of two stanzas, contains repeated semes that build different kinds of isotopies that in turn form clusters of molecules.
