The research findings show that in the adult group who lived in the rural area said enyong and it was still maintained, but in the group of teenagers had shifted enyong to aku word. Whereas in the children group tended to use aku word and enyong depending on the situation and who they were talking to. When they talked to people that were close and in a relaxed situation, they tended to use the enyong word. While the people who live in urban areas, groups of adult, teenagers and children had shifted the enyong word into aku so it was very difficult to find people who still said the enyong word.
