The objective of this study was to find out the semantic components of verbs of sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch sense. The method of this study is the descriptive qualitative research based on a library study. Data analysis was attempted using componential analysis. The findings suggest that componential analysis is very useful to a group of related words which may differ from one another only by one or two components, and each investigated verb has different semantic components even though they have similar meaning. Conclusions suggest that the essentials of the findings of this inquiry can be used to contribute to the development of English language teaching.
