Abstract

This thesis examines the types and the functions of illocutionary acts used by Indonesia This Morning Presenters on Metro TV. This study involves the types and functions of illocutionary acts used by the presenters. In this case the researcher uses Zelda Safitri and Candice Anggunadinata’s utterances. The data were taken from 5th – 29th November 2007 and 3rd – 24th December 2007. All the data was analyzed from the conversations between the presenters and informant and the presenter to other presenters. The utterances of the presenters were then analyzed and interpreted descriptively based on Searle’s speech acts theory especially on the types and functions of illocutionary acts used by Indonesia This Morning presenters on Metro TV.

This study shows that Indonesia This Morning presenters used four types of illocutionary acts. They are representative act, directive act, commissive act, and expressive act. The type of illocutionary acts mostly used by Indonesia This Morning presenters is representative acts. Furthermore, the presenters also use four functions of illocutionary acts based on the social purposes: competitive, convivial, collaborative and conflictive. The function of illocutionary acts were mostly used by Indonesia This Morning presenters is collaborative acts.

Finally, for the next researchers to use other part of conversation analysis, such as deixis, implicature, explicature and others in analyzing Indonesia This Morning program.
