Abstract—Cecimpedan is a kind of riddle in Balinese language. Cecimpedan can be classified into two types, namely onomatope and associative cecimpedan. The classification is based on linear cognitive development with the linguistic competence of children. Onomatope cecimpedan is used by children who are in the preoperational cognitive developmental period whereas associative cecimpedan is used by children who are in formal operational period. The hierarchy of cognitive development motivates the difference of syntactic and semantic constructions within those two kinds of cecimpedan. The semantic process of onomatope cecimpedan involves the logic of inductive analogy that holds on the actual similarity between rhyme and sound resonance of a word. Rhyme and sound resonance are formed through abbreviation process by maintaining the final syllable of a word. It is in opposite with associative cecimpedan. This second type of cecimpedan was developed by using declarative analogy logic. It is constructed through lexical choices that can lead to semantic disparity. This semantic disparity becomes the core of associative cecimpedan. Therefore, each participant must be able to clarify the answer of associative cecimpedan logically and empirically.
