Jurnal Masyarakat dan Budaya (JMB) or Journal of Society and Culture is a peer-reviewed journal that aims to be an authoritative academic source on the study of society and culture. We publish original research papers, review articles, case studies, and book reviews focusing on Indonesian society, cultural phenomena, and other related topics. A manuscript describing society and culture outside Indonesia is expected to be analyzed comparatively with the issues and context in Indonesia. All papers will be reviewed rigorously at least by two referees. JMB is published three times a year, in April, August , and December.

Abstract

This article aims (1) to document proverbs in the Pagu language and (2) to analyse their structure, figure of speech, as well as semantic features. The proverbs documentation (in the Pagu language is known as o demo ma daili, lit: ‘language of examining’) is expected to help revitalizing this endangered language. There are 23 'proverbs' collected during a fieldwork in June 2013 to several villages, in which the inhabitants speak Pagu language. This study found that simile and metaphor are the most common features of Pagu proverbs (eleven and six consecutively). Simile describes the similarity between two things, which is overtly marked by the use of soka ‘like’. Meanwhile, metaphor is comparing without comparative words. Keywords: proverbs, simile, metaphor
