Semantic Relations of Soto Headed Attributive Noun Phrases in Indonesian

I Dewa Putu Wijana
Abstract—This paper aims at describing various semantic relation possibilities of attributive noun phrases’ constituents whose head are specifically filled by soto. By observing data collected from soto names and soto restaurant names spread in Yogyakarta province and the surrounding areas and analyzing their contextual usages through paraphrasal and immediate constituent techniques, it is found that the data which refer to soto names and restaurant names can express various semantic relations. Those are place of origin; ingredient; way of serving, preparing and keeping; ownership; identity; location; effect; and appearance and stall opening time. These semantic relations are essentially a reflection of cultural facts concerning soto as one of the most popular cuisines in Indonesia.

Index Terms—Attributive, head, noun phrase, and semantic relation.
