Abstract

AbstractLyrics have significant contributions to the music by giving the audience deep understanding about the message contained in the song. The message can be delivered depending on how the writer put the words in the lyrics (Bertoli-Dutra and Bissaco, 2006: 1053). This study focused on analysing interpersonal meanings and linguistics features from the perspective of Appraisal Theory. Due to the time constraints, the study only analysed the interpersonal meaning from Attitude categories, - Affect, Judgement and Affection. The method used was descriptive which data collected from ‚??Lonely Night‚?Ě song lyric by CNBLUE. The process data analysis was based on Appraisal Framework, a development of Systemic Functional Linguistics, proposed by Martin and White (2005). The result of study showed that the song ‚??Lonely Night‚?Ě has high Affect sub-categories which reached 81.25%, meanwhile the Judgement and Affection reached the same amount, 9.3%. From all affect types, the song showed unhappiness where the composer revealed the feeling of being dumbed and disrespected. Finally, Appraisal Framework, as one of approach used in many genres, can be used as an alternative for analysing song. Appraisal Framework was developed to make analysis which is more systemic and organized as it was developed from Systemic Functional Linguistics.¬†Keywords: Appraisal Theory, Song Lyric, Affect, Text Analysis

Abstract

AbstractThe positive attitudes are expected from students when they are learning English. These positive attitudes will help them to get the benefit of learning the language easily and smoothly. When students have positive attitudes meaning that they are at ease to learn and accept the material from the lecturer. This is important since learning process takes place when they are at ease. On the other hand, if students already perform negative attitude towards the language, they will stuck with the barrier, the difficulties to master the language. Consequently, students are de-motivated in mastering the language. For this reason, teaching learning process in the class is not optimum. If this is happen, students do not learn the language at their best. Hence, they are not capable to learn the material that they need to master. Language mastery, in the future, will help them to be able to cope with the language related to their career or job. This study is aimed to find out whether there is a relation between their attitude towards English learning and the mastery of English in their work field. The students are asked to fill in the questionnare and the researchers are observing the students‚?? attitudes in the classrooms when they are studying. The implication of this study is to influence the students‚?? attitude in the teaching learning process. Therefore, the result reveals that the participants indicate some negative attitude towards learning English.¬†Keywords: Positive attitudes, learning English, ESP, Transportation and Logistics,¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† STMT Trisakti
