Thus, understanding meaning becomes the most important thing in communication especially in advertising. Moreover, the main purpose of advertisements is to deliver the messages, that should be understood by the hearer or reader and finally they will respond by buying or using the product that advertised. Based on that background, this study is conducted on how the types of meaning are appeared in the language of advertisement of well-known electronic products which is specified to identify the types of associative meaning appeared and describe meaning that is emphasized.
