Eva Tuckyta Sari Sujatna

Abstract


Although Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL) approach is commonly applied to West Germanic languages, there is limited study has been conducted to apply this approach to Austronesian languages, especially Sundanese language. In this study, the present writer figures out the Sundanese verbs, as one of the Austronesian languages, in mental processes and their clause constructions based on clause as representation and clause as exchange. This study employs verbs as the central of the processes to investigate the mental process in Sundanese clauses. The study shows that the selected Sundanese verbs could be found in mental processes and the four sub-types of process of sensing in mental processes do occur in Sundanese clauses.
