Synchronic linguistic approach to the theory of contrastive morphology modern Arab-Indonesia in particular phonemes that are strengthened by data analysis methods and percieving (observation) is used to analyze the common daily language of the students. The study results showed that the formation of a new vocabulary that differs from the recognized rules of Arabic is divided into two, namely internal (lexical shape changes which is still in the category of Arabic language) and external (lexical form changes which come under the category of Indonesian language).
