ABSTACT LatifahDhitaAyu, 2017. Analysis of Semiotic Elements in Rashomon, a Short Story by AkutagawaRyounosuke This thesis is a studyof semiotic elements found in Rashomon, a short story by AkutagawaRyoumosuke. The short story tells the tales of communities in Kyoto who would go to extreme lengths to survive, after facing a series of tragedies. To interpret the storyline in Rashomon, semiotic element signs i.e. icon, index and symbol are required. The theory used in this study is Charles Sander Pierce’s theory on semiotics. According to Pierce, signs can be classified into three categories, namely iconic, indexical and symbolic signs. Iconic signs resemble or imitate, indexical signs are characterized by causalities, and symbolic signs are marked by conventions. The researcher used the descriptive research method in this study, aiming to elaborate semiotic concepts that are relevant to the research findings. The research findings show that iconic, indexical and symbolic signs in Rashomon have influence over the storyline, for example, the character Genin who is portrayed as a lower-class samurai in the study, can be interpreted as an icon for an emperor in semiotic analysis. Meanwhile, the old woman who isdepicted as an old person in the story,can be semioticallyinterpreted as the poor and the oppressed in society. Charles Sander Pierce’s theory on icon, index and symbol enables the researcher to comprehend the meanings or symbols in the story, therefore allowing the AkutagawaRyuunsukeintention as the author to convey the information accurately. Key Words : Semiotics,Rashomon, Icons, Index and Symbol
