The usingof aesthetic and artificial language in oral traditional verse sometimes exceeds its functions as a medium to convey morality advice, character building, self emotional expression, and embeded wishes. As atraditional verse, lyrics of kabhanti are created by using marvellous language that potentially disturbs to understand the messages. Language style of kabhanti is perceived strange as the impact of linguistic deviations to achieve the sense of aesthetic. This study aims at describing and analyzing phonological, grammatical, and semantic deviations as the means to achieve the sense of aesthetic in the lyrics of kabhanti. Data of kabhanti lyrics were taken from the people who had adequate experiences to perform kabhanti in front of audience. Results of the study are phonological deviation is achieved by phonemic addition at the beginning and middle of words through phonemic appearing of nasal alveolar of n /n/, nasal velar of ng /ŋ/, and fricative velar of m /m/; grammatical deviation by inversion; and semantic deviation by transference and honest deception. Transference occurs through the using of figurative languages of metaphor, synecdoche, and metonymy; honest deception by the using of litotes, hyperbole, and irony. The three kinds of deviations make the language style of kabhanti becomes more aesthetic and artistic compared to the conventional syle of daily language
