Abstract :

Language changes over time, notably the words of language. The historical changes of words can be observed from a dictionary, and in the English language, the dictionary that provides a full account of the historical changes of words is the Oxford English Dictionary (OED). The changes can be related to the language sources of the words in the OED that come from more than 350 languages (Denison & Hogg, 2006, p. 1). One of such languages is Javanese, which is a local language in Indonesia. An advanced search in the OED for the entries with Javanese etymology results in 33 entries. An analysis of these Javanese loanwords in the OED reveals the need to revise the entries in order to give a better account of these Javanese loanwords. The revision or update of the entries at the OED has been conducted quarterly since the OED went online in 2000. An entry in the OED has the following components: etymology section, sense section, and lemma section (Weiner, 2009, p. 403). In this paper, the writer focuses on the variants section, lemma section and the sense section. The writer believes that there are several out-dated variants in the Javanese entries. As well as for the lemma section, there are additional lemmas that have yet included in the OED. The writer also thinks that there is a need to revise and update the sense section due to the imprecise definition or semantic change. The analysis shows that 21 are outdate, 3 need revisions in the variants section, 3 need addition in the lemma section, and 6 need revisions in the sense section. Consequently, the revision of the entries is indeed necessary, and this paper is expected to serve as an input for revising the entries in the OED.
