Studyng the posuo traditional rituals carried out by the people of Buton we will talk about what is contained in the ritual. Posuo for the Buton community is a transitional ritual or ceremony for Buton women who have entered puberty, a transition from adolescence to adulthood. For the people of Buton, this ritual is not merely a routine of adat, but substantially has its own meaning through a system integrated in it. Through semiotic analysis with the theory used by Ferdinand de Saussure, it can be studied that the posuo traditional ritual applied to Buton women is a contextual language system that clearly contains certain  meanings. The elements that build this posuo ritual so that it becomes meaningful is certainly related to the sign system as a symbol. As a language system, posuo rituals for Buton women will be described through sintagma and system studies.
