Abstract

AbstractThe language of songs can be seen as one of the results of the ever-changing system of language itself. In linguistic views, the language of songs is often seen as similar to the language of poems. That is, in the language of songs, the composers formulate some expressions to describe diverse experiences. Perhaps one of the most significant evolutionary changes of language system is the introduction of the new meaning(s) of a word as its internal states and its relationships to other words. The relationship between one word with another—strung both syntactically and stylistically—can produce meaningful strings and are capable of stimulating extra meanings. Applying the theories of syntax and stylistics, this paper is intended to analyze how some expressions in the song “Aubrey” offer some possible extra logical meanings and make it a very popular song in the 70s up to the present day. Keywords: extra logical meaning, metaphor, senses

Abstract

This article aims to explore the work of fate in the sense of natural law and its manifestation in leading the life of the heroine in Thomas Hardy’s Tess of the D’Urbervilles. The theoretical framework is the concept of fate and Sartre’s Existentialism by applying the concept of free will and personal responsibility. The analysis focuses on any natural events that happen in Tess’ life, which eventually become such fate agents in determining Tess’ life. The finding says that no matter how fateful her life is, Tess exhibits how much she stands on her own by revealing her own free will and her personal responsibility regarding her reaction towards the fateful events she undergoes.

Abstract

AbstractThe Dante Club is an American historical fiction written by Matthew Pearl. Thestory takes place in the state of Massachusetts during the aftermath of theAmerican Civil War. The two major issues presented in the novel are xenophobia and anti-Catholicism. Specifically, it tells about a controversy over the Italian literary work, “Divine Comedy”, which is being translated into English by a group of notable poets named Dante Club. Their endeavor is considered as promoting Catholicism which is subjectively interpreted as an act of threatening the state. Based on Louis Althusser’s theoretical perspective, the work of the state authorities to hinder the group’s effort is seen as the manifestation of ideological practice. The theory points out that such an interference may commonly be found to be performed by two types of powerful institution, namely Ideological State Apparatuses (ISAs) and Repressive State Apparatuses (RSAs).This study discusses the practice of state ideology which is intended to maintain the state power as described in the novel. The focus is on answering the question of how ISAs and RSAs are authorized to exert their role to control people as well as to influence them on behalf of the state.Keywords: Ideology, Ideological State Apparatuses, Repressive State Apparatuses, Divine Comedy

Abstract

The process of determining the possible intention or purpose of Alice’s utterances is decipherable by applying politeness theory, particularly positive politeness strategy proposed by Brown and Levinson (1987) as the main approach. The way she performs her efforts or struggle are mostly stated by using optimistic strategy which aims to ensure her interlocutor that she is “still Alice” who has outstanding intelligence and brightness and considered as a high flying academic carrer woman. It is shown through the modal verb “can” which expresses her abilities to conduct her activities and the tobe “am/is” that illustrates her conviction in delivering statements. It means that she builds and performs the optimism to maintain everything which has been accumulated by herself. Promise and giving understanding strategy are also used to portray the way she faces and survives on her Alzheimer. In promise strategy, it is shown through the modal verb “will” which indicates that she has a high intention to do something. While, in giving understanding strategy, it can be seen from innovative ways applied by herself. Although she has a disease which usually gets worse over time, but she tries hard with kinds of way to conquer it. Based on the previous description, there are some significances about positive politeness strategy in language. It is not only a strategy that is used to utter or assert a statement but it is also able to reveal the hidden meaning of the speaker. Therefore, by using positive politeness strategy, people can detect what actually desired by the speaker. In this research, this strategy is used by Alice because she wants to show that she tries hard for struggling against her Alzheimer. It is conducted by Alice as she does not want that the Alzheimer hold a rein on herself which can limit her abilities, break her carrer, and also affect the harmony of her family.
