Abstract

A speaker customarily opens the conversation by saying greeting to his or her interlocutor. At a glance, greetings maybe not a complicated activity but for the most part, they are highly conventionalized and follow patterned routines. Despite it, the pattern or sequence of greetings along with its type is dynamic and developed. The research aimed to describe the kinds of verbal and non-verbal greetings customarily shown in every exchange, to reveal the sequence of English and Indonesian greetings as adjacency pairs in social exchange. The data consists of English collected from "Twelve Years a Slave" while Indonesian data are obtained from observation, record, and field notes. Both of the data are analyzed by using descriptive qualitative method. The result of this research indicates that there are four types of Indonesian sequential greetings uncovered by Firth's theory, characterized by interjection-question, question-body language, interjection-invitation, and invitation. Each is used in a single utterance for each pair. Second, English data indicate the sequences of greetings uttered by first pair and second are symmetrical, body language preceding question, and body language, on the other hand, Indonesian greeting sequence, the researcher finds an asymmetrical pattern, question preceding question, body language, and visual response. Miscellaneous greeting sequences also appeared in both such as affirmation and facial expression, question and affirmation, affirmation and invitation, invitation and affirmation, and also question and direct answer.

Abstract

English, as one colonial’s legacy, is a lingua franca. It connects people with different first languages and cultures around the world. As the demand of 21st century learning, the learning of English in EFL speaking classes has changed. It no longer focuses on how to speak like native speakers, but to speak like an educated person; to speak in English confidently and fluently, demonstrating good grammar and correct pronunciation. Therefore, World English with different accents and dialects exist. Furthermore, to explain the nature of English which is the result of Western dominaton during colonialism and imperialism, Postcolonial theories can explain the significance of World English in EFL speaking classes. This library research, then, aims to answer this research question: ‘How do postcolonial theories contribute significances to the use of the World English in EFL speaking classes?’. From the theoretical analysis employed from experts, important figures, and previous prominent theories and findings on discussing the same topic, there are two postcolonial theories which contribute to the existence of the World English in today’s EFL speaking classes. First,  English Linguistic Imperialism which influenced the Other, East, or Orient to feel it was compulsory to speak in English like natives in the past. Second, Bhabha’s hybridity and Fanon’s cultural resistance which help to give an understanding about accepting mixed cultures and identity. Finally, the discussion of the study will raise an awareness of how Postcolonial theories relate to the presence of the World English used by non-native English speakers and give an insight to EFL learners and practitioners about the World English in speaking classes.

Abstract

Writing skill is crucial for non-English students, like agriculture students because students are required to write an abstract of bachelor thesis in English. Nowadays, writing is not only conducted conventionally i.e. using paper and pencil, but also using the internet through online writing exchange. Several studies regarding students’ writing errors have been conducted but error analysis of agriculture students’ writing using online writing is still less researched. To fill this gap, the present study aimed to analyze the types of errors made by agriculture students during joining Online Writing Exchange with Japanese students and students’ perception of the Online Writing Exchange program. 137 students’ writings were analyzed and identified the error and counted the error. Questionnaires and interviews were used to know students’ perceptions.  The results showed that there were three types of error made i.e. mechanical, grammatical, and L1-influence error. Students’ perception toward the online writing was positive although they face several difficulties. It is noteworthy that different writing media affect students’ different writing errors.

Abstract

Critical Discourse Analysis demystifies power mechanisms operating in different kinds of discourse. It sets forth hidden discourses and meanings for common people. Besides, the current research assignment has studied Bernard Lewis’ essay: The Roots of Muslim Rage using Ruth Wodak’s Discourse Historical Model (2004). Moreover, the researchers have employed purposive sampling as a research design to collect the data. The research is qualitative as it answers the research questions using Wodak’s model. The purpose of this research was to expose hermeneutic interpretations of orientalist discourse that reflect implausible thinking about Muslims. However, much work has been done on discourse of orientalism, yet from Wodak’s point of view much work is to be done; hence, the current research paper has also contributed to the field of critical discourse analysis. The subjectification of the Muslims through oriental norms is the main theme in Lewis’ essay as revealed by analysing lexical and syntactic units. Thus, the current research has concluded the findings in accordance with the research questions and research objectives.
