Taboo words are the words used for cursing, insulting, or other words that sometime produce negative meaning. Some several taboo words took from animal names, bodily function, excretion and any other. That taboo words also happened in Javanese, for instant, animal names: wedhus kowe, raimu koyok munyuk, and so on. This evidence is also finds out in Wardaugh’s theory, in his theory, he tells more kind of taboo. According to Wardhaugh (2006:239), he says that, tabooed subjects can vary widely: sex; death; excretion; bodily functions; religious matters; and politics. Tabooed objects that must be avoided or used carefully can include your mother-in-law, certain game animals, and use of your left hand (the origin of sinister). Qualitative research is used to analyze this thesis, by supporting three methods, there are: recording, transcribing, and fragmenting. The three methods are helpful to describe the analyzing data, first is recording, used to record the taboo utterances which is produced by children in Punggul village. Second is transcribing. This method is used to write the record data to be written text. It is make the research easier to analyze. This thesis divided the analysis into three parts: the taboo words classification used by children in Punggul village, the contexts for using those taboo words, and the reasons for the use of the taboo words. Wardhaugh’s statement used to classify the taboo into subject matter and object matter. There are some kind of taboo according to Wardhaugh, there are, sex: this term refers to sexual activities. Death: this term refers to something that makes afraid to people who hear that word. Bodily functions: refers to human’s organ. Religious matter: this part refers to the God. Excretion: this part has connected with human excretory. Mother-in-law: this part used to woman who make affair. Certain game animals: this term refers to names of animal. The left hand (the origin of sinister): this last part refers to sign something by using hand (finger). And this thesis also supported by Hymes’ theory about context. Taboo words commonly used by adult but this thesis would try to identify about taboo words which is used by children as adult use. In this analyzing found several taboo words in children conversing such as cuk or diancuk, jamput, hancik and any other words.
