ABSTRACT

This report explores the sociolinguistic theory of Edward Sapir (1884-1939) and the analytical method. It suggests for present-day linguistics. This report reviews the characteristics of Sapir's language theory, particularly within semantics, and confirmed the invocation possibility of a daily language phenomenon. Thus "personality" is important as is "synchronicity" and "relativity" within each culture in the semantic analysis of Sapir. Recent studies by Arima (2012) and Kato (2015) support Sapir's hypothesis. Similarly, "Association" and "motivation" are the focus of a semantic study by Ikegami (1978) each are fundamentally connected to Sapir's ideas. Finally, about the methodology of a comparison-contrast in Inoue's (2016) report is connected Sapir's analysis. The writer contends that the trial of the new methods from the point of view of multiple lenses will be make possible the building a conceptual the synchronicity between media.
