Abstract

English for Young Learner (EYL) is one of specialization courses offered to English Department students in University of Muhammadiyah Malang (UMM). This study aimed at identifying the ways EYL student teachers expressed motion events, either using manner-incorporating sentences, path-incorporating sentences, or equipollently framing manner and path in the same predication position (Serial Verb Construction – SVC). The data were taken from oral narrative production when the six language consultants were to retell the stories for teaching in both English and Bahasa versions. The findings suggest that English narratives told by EYL student teachers tend to sound more like satellite-framed, with the high percentage of occurrence (85%). This is supported by theories. Behaving differently, the Bahasa version narratives tend to sound more like verb-framed, with the high percentage of occurrence (80%). This is contradictory compared to the existing theories affirming that Bahasa should fall within an equipollently-framed language that allows serialized verbs in a sentence. However, there is still a positive indication that some language consultants are still committing to the natural way of using serial verbs to produce lively descriptions in their Bahasa narratives. This study recommends that EYL teachers in Indonesia could perform story telling with the appropriate constructions to sharpen the English sense of young learners, as well as preserving the natural production of narrative sentences in Bahasa as their local language.
