Abstract

Indonesian products are created. To analyze the data found the
researchers applied English word formation in English morphology. This
is a descriptive research. The data were brand names using English found
in Indonesian product which were taken from three supermarkets in Solo
namely Hypermart Solo Grand Mall, Hypermart Gorro Assalam, and
