Malang Walikan is a kind of language that uses
reversed words in which Malang people use in their daily-conversation,
especially in informal talks. Usually it is
the younger generations who use such language more often
than the older ones.
There are three reasons why the writer is interested
in analyzing Malang reversion. The first reason is because
she has many friends who live in Malang and use the reversion
everyday. The second is she is curious about the
usage of Malang reversion. She becomes more interested in
such reversion after she read a thesis of Malang reversion
done by former student of IKIP Malang in 1976.
This study tries to find out the various types of
Malang Walikan. Another important focus of this study is
to determine the source languages of Malang Walikan.
This study is also a kind of further study of similar

After a thorough analysis, it is revealed that
Malang Walikan can be divided into three types of words;
Systematic reversion, Fluctuated reversion, and Slang.
There is a particular formula to form systematic reversion,
while the other two types could not be found any
formula. The formula is:
p l + P 2 + ..... + p x becomes Px +P(x-1)+......+P1
The words of Systematic and Fluctuated reversions are
derived from Indonesian and Javanese since the people of
Malang are influenced by the usage of both languages.
Thus, the domination of Indonesian words can be seen
obviously in both types of reversion.
