In Indonesian society, there are variety of ethnic groups and each of the groups has its own culture and language. Cindo language is one of the languages that used by the Indonesians, especially the descendants of Chinese people who live in Surabaya, but not the 'Totok' ones. This language is interesting because it is combined between Indonesian and Javanese system. So, most people who use it sometimes think that they are using Indonesian or Javanese. For example: the word 'rumahe-ae', it is a combination between Indonesian and Javanese system because the word 'rumah' is Indonesian, while the suffix { -e} +free morpheme { ae} is influenced by the Javanese system. The facts above make the writer interested in doing a research in Cindo language, especially in Surabaya, the city where she lives in. Like other languages, the Cindo language also has words that function as a noun, pronoun , verb, adjective, etc. Since the verb formations in Cindo language has been investigated, the writer decided to limit her study only on the noun formations of the language. •The writer collected the data by using a tape-recorder and a cassette as the audio recording and noted diary. The data in the form of some conversations were taken in the real situation. Then, the writer transcribed and analyzed the data according to their affixes distributions. Based on the findings, she found that actually, there is one kind of suffix, one free morpheme, and a combination between the suffix and the free morpheme which always occur in making a conversation with Cindo speakers. Those arc {-e}, { ae} and { -e + ae}. Besides, there are some morphophonemic processes in the Cindo nouns. The process involves l) devoicing process and 2) nasal assimilation in homorganic environment. Devoicing process applies for the bases that have voiced stop [b. d, g) in the final position and they are combined with suffix {-e}. They will be devoiced to voiceless stop [p, t, k]. Nasal assimilation in homorganic environment consists of five parts. The nasal prefix {N-} undergoes a nasal assimilation in the environment of the position immediately followed by voiceless stop consonant /t/ and /p/, voiced stop consonant /b/, vowels, and fronto- palatal consonant b /s,c/. It is suggested that some other researchers on the Cindo language concerning adverbial formations, adjectives formations besides the verb and noun formations can be conducted by other students those who are interested in the language.
