Abstract

This paper discusses the use of Javanese in its speech community. Nowadays more and more families use national language in their daily communication. Most parents (middle to high economic conditions) tend to use Indonesian to their children relating to the feeling of as educated and modern people. This circumstances lead to weaknesses of Javanese use among prospective Javanese speakers, children. Besides, fewer formal traditional social meetings make use of Javanese. This makes Javanese becoming much less common in its speech community. People feel more comfortable and secure using Indonesian in expressing their ideas because they lack of Javanese communicative competence in delivering their mind in terms of social norms and affective value. Finally Indonesian government hasn’t made an optimal effort to save indigenous language. It can be seen from school curriculums which determine Javanese as local content.
