The purpose of this study is to find out the structure of compound words and the types of compound words in Dawan language. This study belongs to qualitative research aiming at describing the struc-ture and the types of compound words in Dawan language. The data are taken from language con-sultants (informants) of Dawan language speakers through interview method The result of analysis showed that compound words in Dawan language are structured by combining two different words whether the words in the same category or different category. The structure of compound words are built by combining noun (N) with noun (N), for instance mais-oni ‘sugar’ which is built by the noun mais ‘salt’ and the noun oni ‘sweet’; noun (N) with verb (V), for instance bife-anaot ‘prostitute’ which is built by the noun bife ‘woman’ and the verb anaot ‘work’; verb (V) with noun (N), for in-stance poni-haano ‘propose’ which is built by the verb poni ‘hang’ and the noun hauno ‘leaf’; verb (V) with verb (V), for instance fua-tulu ‘worship’ which is built by the verb fua ‘see’ and the verb tulu ‘give’; and noun (N) with adjective (Adj), for instance ume-kbubu ‘kitchen’ which is built by the noun ume‘house’ and the adjective kbubu ‘circle’. Further analysis on the compound words showed that they can also be classified into compound noun, compound verb, and compound adjective.
