Abstract

The 2016 US Presidential Election has become world’ great issue since the politician’s speech is mainly concerned with persuading or making the listeners believe with what they are saying. It is a concession speech of Hillary Clinton’s that brings out more inspirations to the public than the value of the failure itself.  Based on that phenomenon, the researcher was interested in analyzing Hillary Clinton’s concession speech by investigating the role of language in communication analysis through speech acts based on the theory of J.L Austin-Searle and genre analysis The researcher decided to raise the constructivism analysis of discourse which analyzes the context behind the languages used in the forms of speech. The results showed that its speech acts types according to its locutionary acts analysis : Declarative (12),  Imperative (12), illocutionary acts: Representatives (11), Commisives (3), Directives (9), Declaratives (3), and Expressives (9), and variety of perlocutionary acts (to get people to know, do something, express feeling, and praise). This expository speech mostly characterized by the appreciation and encouragement to the public (a type of speech/discourse which called persuasive-argumentative) and she spoke much about unity to create strong power of America.

Abstract

This study reported on an analysis of the transcript of the students’ conversation. It highlighted the way in which the transcript was analyzed qualitatively on the issue of clause complexity based on the perspective of Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL). In detail, this study demonstrated the clause complexity of the transcript of the students’ conversation which was related to, for example, inter-clausal relations (logico-semantic relation), coordination (parataxis) and subordination (hypotaxis) as mainly outlined by Halliday (1994), Halliday & Matthiessen (2004) and Eggins (2004). The results of the analyses indicated that the students showed a positive trend of developments in the use of semantic relations in their conversation. The students produced clause complexes (37.71%) less than clause simplexes (62.29%), In the syntactic dimension, the students produced hypotaxis (50.65%) more than parataxis (49.35%). In hypotaxis, the students produced expansion (92.31%) more than projection (7.69%). It also occurred in parataxis where students also produced expansion (92.11%) more than projection (7.89%). In the logico-semantic dimension, students produced expansion (92.47%) more than projection (7.53%). In the case of projection, locution (57.14%) was produced more than idea (42.86%). In addition, in the case of expansion, elaboration (40.70%) was the most frequently used by the students rather than both of extension (34.88%) and enhancement (24.42%).

Abstract

The mingle model is a new technique to teach speaking that is developed by Darmayenti (2015). Few scholars have investigated the relation, contribution, and implementation of a mingle technique in class. This paper aims to discuss the constraints of the mingle model from Darmayenti (2015) in improving students’ speaking skills. Based upon few relevant journal articles, the effects of content evaluation display limitation of research on the integrated effect of the mingle model. This paper provides information for future studies to expose the effectiveness of the Mingle model on students’ speaking skills proficiency.
