Abstract

The above eye-triggering title has successfully led readers to some words as “cheesy” or “tacky”. In fact, it is not necessarily the case. Go further deeper to its origin. Alay is a coined word, contracted from Anak Layangan (Children – Kite) or Anak Lebay (Children – Exaggerating). Referring to Layangan (Kite), it shows that Alay-nesians are at the childhood or a teenage period in which playing kites is one of hobbies during those age-spans. Then, it is predicted that the users of Alay-nesians (users) are those aging between 12 - 19 years old. Experiencing puberty implies experiencing the fluctuating moods – a rollercoaster. Therefore, expression exaggeration (in this case called as Lebay in Bahasa) is by nature true among teenagers at those ages. In other words, Alay, a term compounded from Anak Layangan or Anak Lebay, is made on purpose to refer to its users.
