Semantic relations with other Disciplines

Praise be to God who will not cease to give grace, taufiq and guidance to his servant, and always pleased with our deeds. Prayers and greetings to Prophet Muhammad always terlimpahkan SAW.Dalam this paper discusses the semantics with other disciplines, has been discussed previously and historical understanding.
In 1923 came the book The Meaning of Meaning Ogden & Richards works that emphasize the relationship of three basic elements, namely the 'thought of reference' (mind) as an element that presents a specific meaning that has a significant relationship with the referent (reference). The mind has a direct relationship with the symbol (symbol). The symbol has no direct relationship with the symbol (symbol). The symbol does not have an arbitrary relationship. In connection with the meaning, the experts used to determine the semantics of the fact that the origin of the word meaning (nouns) than to the mean (verb), in which many containing 'meaning' different. Leech (1974) states that the semantic experts are often not fair to think of 'the meaning of meaning' which is required for the introductory study of semantics. They actually tend to explain the semantics in conjunction with other sciences; the experts still argue that the meaning of language can not be understood or can not be developed except in the sense of nonlinguistic
Semantics is a very broad field, since it involves the elements of the structure and function of language, which is closely related to psychology, philosophy and anthropology, and sociology. Anthropological interest in the field of semantics, among others, because the analysis of meaning in language can present klasifikasikasi language user in a practical culture. philosophy is closely linked to semantics because the meaning of certain issues that can be explained philosophically (the meaning of phrases and proverbs). Psychology closely related to the semantics for psychology utilizing human psychiatric symptoms displayed verbally and nonverbally. Sociology has an interest in semantics, because a certain phrase or expression can be adequate social group or a particular social identity. Hopefully in this discussion beneficial to us all and add to treasury of knowledge.
In an important discussion linguistics discussed by scholars Alsun (fonology) and Dilalah (Semantic) is a matter of words and meanings. At first, the subject of study only questioned the relationship between language and meaning lafadz. After dilalah science progressed, bahasannya was widespread and included madluul wa daal, daal whether or not it is lafadz lafadz. And in the end no other language is a binding relationship between the daal and madluulnya within the scope of the regular network. That's because the daal itself does not carry the meaning that he carries himself but as a resource that connects dalalah daal and madluulnya. This opinion is itself held by DR. Abdul Salam Al-Masdy in his book Al-Lisaniyyaat Ususuha wa.
Different again with the opinion of daal and madluul Souser, he mengistilahkanna with Ad-Al-lisany arguments. Ad-Daal-thinks-is the quality of sound or acoustic form. While al-madluul is the main idea [1].
As the study of linguistics, semantics do not learn the meanings associated with nonlinguistic signs such as the language of flowers, language of color, Morse, and the language of the stamp. These things are an issue of semiotics that is the subject that learning the meaning of a sign or symbol in general. While semantics is learn the meaning of language as a means of verbal communication.
Assessing the meaning of language (as a means of verbal communication) certainly can not be separated from its users. User language is the community. Therefore, study of semantics is closely associated with other social sciences, like sociology, psychology, anthropology, and philosophy.

Semantic relations with other Disciplines
1.semantik with sociology
semantics associated with sociology because reality is often encountered in the community in using certain words to say something that could mark the identity of speakers and groups
example the word "girl" and "woman"
the word "girl" is more synonymous used by teens or young children, while the word "woman" seem more polite to say and is identical to the parents who put politeness in spoken [2]
2. semantics to psychology
Study of semantics associated with psychology is certainly more to do with mental, because the expression of one's soul is expressed through language and have the meanings according to context.
Example words: joy and sorrow
The word "love" is defined as joy or pleasure someone over something that he felt such as "andi love to play ball", while the word "grief" is defined as resulting in feelings of sadness. Example: Indonesia mourn the landslide that occurred Ciwidei Bandung regency.
The example above is a semantic analysis of adjectives in other words can be said to be related to semantic positive and negative. [3]
3. Semantics with Anthropology
Semantics is considered an interest in anthropology since the analysis of meaning in
a language, through the choice of words used by speakers, will get a promising practical classification of the cultural life of native speakers.
Example: use / selection of the word 'ngelih' or 'sluggish' equally mean that reflect a culture hungry for speakers. The word "ngelih" used by the people of Yogyakarta and while the word 'sluggish' is a term for people hungry for Jombang eastern Java in particular areas.
4. Semantics in Philosophy
Is basically questioned the meaning of linguistic philosophers in the relationship between speech, thought, reality, and nature. The general theory of meaning among other distinguished
v The theory of reference or correspondence
v Theory Contextual Theory
v The theory of conceptual
v Theory formalism [4]
1. The theory of reference or meaning of this correspondence refers to the referent that is expressed through the sounds of language symbols in the form of phrases or sentences.
Examples of "the former vice president of RI 2004-2009"
2. Contextual theory
Contextual theory of meaning must have a basic or primary regardless of the context of new situations to get a secondary meaning.
3. The theory of conceptual
Conceptual theory depends on the concept of language in speech, sentences, phrases, discourse
4. Theory formalism
Formalist theory is more concentrated on the discussion of text features, particularly those properties which language is used rather than the creation of context and context acceptance.


Semantics is a branch of linguistics that discusses the meaning of the word. Assessing the meaning of language (as a means of verbal communication) certainly can not be separated from its users. User language is the community. Therefore, study of semantics is closely associated with other social sciences, ie sociology, psychology, anthropology, and philosophy.
