Language of Lockdowns: New Words and COVID-19 Measures in Indonesia and the Philippines
Keywords:language, lockdown, new words, covid-19, indonesia, philippines
The World Health Organization (WHO) says the coronavirus outbreak first appeared in the People's Republic of China. As of May 4, 2020, infectious disease has approximately 3,529,808 cases worldwide and more than 49,900 cases in Southeast Asia. On March 11, 2020, WHO declared COVID-19 a global pandemic. Thus, the emergency seen as temporary will soon become the inevitability of the new normal. In the COVID-19 outbreak, many new words spread in the community around the world. On the other hand, language is the only human property that is not accompanied by language. Language change can occur at all levels of linguistics, whether phonological, morphological, syntactic, semantic, or lexicon. The pandemic gave rise to a new vocabulary used in the terminology of pandemic resolution by local governments. This study uses a qualitative method with a descriptive-analytical model and an interactive analysis method to analyze the data. In general, there are differences in handling the pandemic between ASEAN countries. In this case, the conditions in Indonesia and the Philippines will be explicitly described. This study will describe the measure in each of these countries.
