Abstract

Artificial intelligent-based application helps people in many ways, one of which telling them jokes. This study aims at (1) investigating the types of jokes on Google Assistant application, and (2) describing linguistic aspects used in the jokes. There were several steps in conducting this study. Firstly, the data of this study were the jokes taken from “tell me a joke” feature on Google Assistant. As many as 58 jokes were collected as the data. Then, the data were coded and analysed based on its linguistic aspects in terms of sounds, meanings, and word formations. After all data were analysed, conclusions were drawn. There are two forms of jokes in this application namely riddle and one liner. In riddle, the jokes are presented in question-answer form, whereas one liner joke only consists of one or two sentences. There are several linguistic aspects in creating the jokes, namely homonyms, minimal pair, substitution of sounds, onomatopoeia, phrase and words with similar pronunciation, idiomatic phrase, addition of sound and word combination. Among those aspects, homonyms are the most frequently utilized in the jokes. Jokes are beneficial for language learners to learn the real use of the language, thus further studies on jokes are suggested.

Abstract

Reading comprehension plays a vital role in entertaining and gaining some information. The teacher-researcher needs to do a pre-reading activity to scaffold students' reading comprehension in narrative text. VLP (Vocabulary, Language, Prediction) is an appropriate strategy to improve students' reading achievement by mastering vocabulary before the main reading activity. The students in grade X of SMK with low English reading achievement were taught English, especially reading comprehension in narrative text. Before the strategy was implemented, the average score was 41.1. Then, the Classroom Action Research was conducted, and the VLP strategy was applied. After implementing two cycles of CAR, the average score reached 77.8. It proves that by applying the VLP strategy, students can improve their reading comprehension. Students' motivation in learning English also increased as well as their self-confidence to express their thoughts in class discussions.

Abstract

Language plays a role in the meaning of consumer products in numerous ways. As a result, while establishing an advertising campaign for any ethnic group, language and media are crucial concerns. Surprisingly, English is being increasingly widely used in print advertising in countries like Indonesia, where English is not the predominant language of communication. This study aims to find the effect of using English and the usage of probability markers in triggering purchase intentions towards hygiene and cleaning related products due to Covid-19. This study adopted the mixed-method approach. The researchers distributed questionnaire adapted from Hornikx et al. (2010) to 150 participants and interviewed 15 people. The results showed that the participants preferred English version ads. In addition, when making an advertisement, advertisers must not only choose the appropriate language, but also the appropriate diction. Then, the participants agree that pledges as probability markers influenced their decision to purchase hygiene and cleaning products. Lastly, while designing advertisements, related to hygiene and cleaning products, the advertiser should pay special attention to the body-copy (writings).

Abstract

This study intends to examine the stages of the hero’s journey based on the mythic structure of Campbell’s monomyth and use the monomyth to analyze how a ten-year-old girl, Chihiro, embarks on a journey to the supernatural world in Spirited Away. The study uses content analysis, a descriptive qualitative method, to analyze the monomyth: a departure–initiation–return journey covering seventeen stages. The monomyth involves metamorphoses and challenges that the heroine Chihiro encounters and explores her evolution during her transition to full autonomy in order to reach transformation and self-individuation. Chihiro, in order to rescue her parents, is destined to take the journey: to sink into darkness, the unconscious, and encounter her natural and primitive essence. By fighting against conflict or opposition, Chihiro, as a mythical heroine, completes her monomyth cycle and attains transformation and regeneration.

To maintain learners learning, most universities have adopted online teaching. Assessment and feedback are critical components of instructional scaffolding, particularly in the online learning environment.

The ethnographic case study design is the framework to outline qualitative research. This thematic approach confirms the qualitative researcher’s active participation in identifying assessment and feedback patterns in enhancing English language learners. Given the complexity of assessing and feedback, the study discovered that assessing and feedback could enhance learning English in online situations. These are included the specification of 15 characterizations of the assessment aspect, 15 recommendation elements for conducting the online assessment, and 10 practical online feedback features. The description assessment and feedback remain inextricably and undeniably connected. Online feedback means to be the English lecturers’ reaction to an English learner’s performance.
