The paper presents a morphophonemic process on the Indonesian word formation. The research aimed to explore both morphological and morphophonemic processes found in the Indonesian language. The data in this research were provided with a list of statements containing affixes of the words. The sources of data in this research were taken from the news in online newspaper: kompas.com. The data were processed through a verbal analysis, such as identify and to classify the affixes into their types. The results of the research showed that the affixation process transformed the word classes where the use of confix me-kan changed the roots of adjectives and nouns into the verbs and pe-an changed the roots into noun. Besides, the morphophonemic rules were also discussed from the variation of prefixes me- and pe-. The findings concluded that the affixation processes were very unique and interesting to learn. And, the implication of the research indicated that the Indonesian learners might compare the their native language and the other world languages.
