Abstract :

There are many endangered languages in the world, especially in Indonesia which has 719 individual languages. One of the endangered languages in Indonesia is Komering language, a language that exists in South Sumatera. This language is labeled 6b or Threatened by Ethnologue. This study aims to propose a concept for creating a dictionary of Komering language based on the semantic domain of daily life and using the software called WeSay. The theory of semantic domain is based on Moe (2003). By conducting an interview with four native Komering people, it is discovered that there are 114 words in the “food” subdomain. Thirteen words of this subdomain are found to have been excluded from the dictionary due to five possible causes. These causes are expected to be corrected in the future when making the dictionary. The dictionary database which has been constructed using WeSay is expected to add the resource for creating a better Komering – Indonesia language dictionary in the future.
