Abstract

Information becomes a crucial thing that someone gets in everyday terms. Dealing with the digital era, people can get the information through any communication devices. Then, language still has its own rule in communication. As part of linguistic features, the notion of presupposition and its triggers have been studied by many scholars, linguists and philosophers, but as far as the researcher knows, the comparison between presupposition triggers on news broadcast and online transcript has not been explored yet. Therefore, the present research tries to identify the main presupposition triggers used in both transcripts. This is a descriptive qualitative study where it is designed to describe the case of the study by words or sentences rather than numbers. The object of the study is presupposition found in both CNN different news style. Accordingly, two transcripts were analyzed in terms of presupposition triggers, namely existential, factive, lexical, non-factive, structural, counter-factual, adverbial, and relative. The analyses of the transcripts revealed that the most frequently used presupposition trigger in both varieties of oral discourse was existential.

Abstract

Mental processes are process of sensing and are realized by verbs of cognition, affection,?perception, and volition. Those types of verbs are transitive verbs, which mean they need?object. This means that there is someone who senses (Senser) and there is something that?is sensed (Phenomenon). There are three types of phenomenon, Phenomenon of Thing,?Phenomenon of Act and Phenomenon of Fact. These two participants?Senser and?Phenomenon?always exist in the processes, whether explicitly or implicitly. However,?some clauses that are mental processes do not include one of the participants, eitherSenser or Phenomenon. There is even some data that do not include both participants.?Thus, the aim of this paper is to probe implicit participants that might exist in mental?processes, using content analysis as a method. The result, Implicit Participants, namely?Implicit Senser and Implicit Phenomenon, can be retrieved from sentence that comes?before the mental processes. The mental processes were then paraphrased and?deconstructed to form a complete mental processes that include both participants, Senser?and Phenomenon.Keywords: Mental process, Senser, Phenomenon, implicit

Abstract: This study analyzed speech acts contextualized in Dead Poet Society and Freedom Writers. This study focused on the use of illocutionary acts used by main characters in both movies. In analyzing the data, this study included content analysis. In this regard, three research questions are addressed: 1) What dominant types and functions of illocutionary acts are uttered by the main characters in certain contextual scenes in both movies? 2) What are the intended meanings of those illocutionary acts?, and 3) How frequently are the illocutionary acts used in both movies? The collected data included 97 utterances of the main character in the Dead Poet Society and 84 utterances in the Freedom Writers which contain illocutionary acts in certain scene contexts. The findings revealed that the kinds of illocutionary acts on both films consisted of five kinds: assertive (representative), directive, commissive, expressive, and declarative. ?Moreover, the second result of the study showed that the most frequently illocutionary acts used by the main characters in both movies were suitable with its movie scene contexts. Thus, the intended meaning of the main characters are well described and understandable by the viewers. The third result showed the different percentage of the use of illocutionary acts classification expressed by the main characters in both movies. The most frequently used illocutionary in Dead Poet Society is representative (47.06%) which emphasized on informing (30.59%), and directive (45.87%) in Freedom Writers which emphasized on asking (21.10%). Pedagogically, the findings above recommend that the lecturers develop their creativity in teaching pragmatics (sociolinguistics) to improve teaching and learning process by adapting other relevant sources such as movies.?Key words: Illocutionary acts, Main Character, Movie
