Dr. Jusuf Daniel Ondang

This paper examines the language and cultural components of traditional marriage proposals of the Tontemboan ethnic group. Although all Tontemboan marriage proposals have common elements, each village also has its own traditions. Traditional marriage proposals in the Tombasian Bawah village are quite different from other forms and consist of two phases: a formal and an informal phase. The informal phase is done secretly through the messenger of a young man’s father while the formal phase involves many people. This reflects the social status of the young man’s family: high social status usually leads to a high dowry paid to the young man’s family. This research model used to improve the overall framework of language and cultural influences.
