Abstract

In writing, to produce well-structured and understandable sentences, students must have knowledge of one aspect of grammar, namely parallelism. However, in fact, many students do not understand the concept of parallelism so that they fail to apply it in writing. This study examines the common types of faulty parallel structure in students’ argumentative writing and investigates the factors which cause the fault. This is a qualitative study that collects the primary data from students’ argumentative writing in particular topics which demand them to present their arguments and to provide their position, reasons and evidence in their writing, and the secondary data from the interview. As a result, this study discovers that students commit the faults in different types of parallelism, and mostly take place in parallel structure with elements joined by conjunction, both coordinating and correlative conjunction. The result of the interview section shows that students make the faulty parallelism due to lack of knowledge, lack of attention, and lack of vocabulary. Thus, in order to reduce the faulty parallel structure, the specific materials about parallelism should be added in writing or grammar’s lesson plan.

Abstract

This study is aimed at examining how EFL students in Indonesia utilized photovoice in writing analytical exposition text and exploring their experience as well as perception in learning to write. Four (4) students of senior high school in Indonesia who are taken randomly participated in this qualitative study. The data were gathered from students’ writing of analytical text along with the picture/photograph and interview. Students’ photographs and analytical text were analyzed using photovoice analysis procedures. It consisted of selecting, contextualizing, and codifying phases. Results found three main themes: the main idea, generic structure, and language features. According to the results, photovoice is not only effective for students but also makes them feel interested and motivated in learning writing. In addition, photovoice allows students to express their creativity through the lens of a camera. Photovoice has incredibly fostered students’ learning in writing. They all have positive attitudes toward photovoice participatory learning. Thus, it can be a pedagogical tool to teach writing in an EFL setting. Although this study yielded positive outcomes in writing skills, this can not overgeneralize the outcomes. Therefore, future studies on how students write other writing genres in EFL classrooms need to be conducted.

Abstract

In academic situations, especially in proposal seminar presentations, code switching is generally used by the presenter and the audience also by all elements in the presentation for the different activities and different purposes. It gives a chance to them to communicate with each other by using their first language and foreign language. This qualitative study aims to explain the types of code-switching and the factors causing the students to use code-switching in their proposal seminar presentations. The subjects were four EFL students who were presenting their research proposal. An observation technique was used to retrieve the main data, which is the students’ proposal seminar presentation. Moreover, this study employed an interview technique to obtain the supporting data about factors affecting the students in utilizing code-switching. The theory about types and factors of code-switching was used in this research to analyze the data. The results find four types of code-switching. Those four types are Intra-sentential switching, inter-sentential switching, establishing continuity switches, and tag switching. The result also shows that several factors affect students using code-switching, such as the real lexical need, quoting somebody else, interjection or inserting sentence fillers or sentence connectors, being emphatetic about something clarifying the speech content for the interlocutor. Based on the finding, all types of code-switching are found in this research, and there are only six out of ten factors found in this research.

Abstract

The use of taboo words is strongly influenced by culture. In the growing discourse of use of taboo words in social reality, men are often portrayed to have discourteous traits and utter any form of taboo words when compared to women. However, a movie entitled Death Proof does not show the same trend. The present research aimed at investigating taboo words in the mentioned movie by focusing on their types and motives. Through the utilization of observation and documentation techniques, the data comprised utterances of the main characters that contained taboo words. The results revealed that the main characters employed taboos of profanity, obscenity, vulgarity, epithet and insult. Pertaining to women, they also fulfill those various classifications. Conversely, insult and profanity were the typical types men uttered during the movie. In regard to the motives of using taboo words, it was discovered that psychological, social and linguistic motives tend to stimulate male characters to utter taboo words, while women are merely affected by psychological and social motives. From the results, the research concludes that female characters utter taboo words more variably than men. However, women’s variability on the production of taboo words is limited to certain situations, while men apply taboo words in multiple contexts.
