The writer researches the language use of husband and wife in their reconciliation processes and its connection to the reconciliation processes. She uses a film, entitled âNot Easily Brokenâ (2009) as the representative of reconciliation of husband and wife. She researches the Speech Act of Dave and Clarice during their reconciliation processes. The writer uses the Speech Act theory (Austin, 1962; Searle, 1969; Yule, 1996) and the reconciliation process (Huyse, 2003). Inthe findings of the research, the highest illocution is âRepresentativeâ and automatically, the highest perlocution is from âRepresentativeâ. In the first and second stages, most of the perlocution does not match but in the last stage, all perlocutions match to the illocution and the reconciliation is accomplished.The conclusion is a couple should accept the fact and truth to each other to accomplish reconciliation process.
