Abstract: An academic discourse on ethical practice in linguistics research is an indirect education for the community of practice. Researchers are indebted to the use of research material hence the need to acknowledge the original ideas of their predecessors. It is necessary to cite the sources including diagrams, schematic representations, mainstream ideas, intellectual opinions as well as any findings in the existing research literature of the related studies in linguistics. The matter becomes relevant when cognitive linguistics is invoked as the framework for analyzing Malay prefix. The similarities between subareas of cognitive linguistics, namely image schema and cognitive grammar could be juxtaposed as mutually dependent notions so much so that the original differences in each foundation may be blurred due to a lack of distinct citations. This discussion tracks the origins of the so-called image schema in a study, which paid little attention to the original research literature. The research on beR- is found to be problematic with the combination of varrying cognitive reasonings into a web of analysis for a Malay bound morpheme.
