Emotions as inseparable from human life must be an important part that affects many things. However, to know the meaning of various emotional vocabularies in various languages would need a way that can represent what the owner of the language. Different languages can have a different meaning, although it has almost the same meaning. Sundanese as an active regional language used in West Java has an emotional vocabulary that is closely related to culture. This research analyzed Sundanese emotion words by using Natural Semantic Metalanguage theory which was introduced by Anna Wierzbicka and this emotions words are classified by Izard and Buechler theory. There are 33 data collected form Manglè Magazine, 26 data entered into ten basic emotional classifications according to Izard and Buechler, and 7 other data not included in the classification because it have different meaning and do not enough when interpreted by ten basic vocabulary.
