Abstract

English Department Students of Undip whose parents are Javanese have been exposed to at least three languages namely Javanese, Indonesian, and English. Some of them are learning other foreign languages such as Korean, Japanese, and French. As a local language, Javanese has a certain position in its users. The position can be influenced by its users’ attitudes towards the language. I will show the students’ attitudes towards Javanese and their roles in maintaining Javanese language. I used questionnaires, DCT (Discourse Completion Tasks), non-participant observation, and interview to present the data. To analyze them, I used inferential, distributional, and translational methods. The result indicates that the English Department Students of Undip have positive attitudes towards Javanese and its maintenance. However, there is a tendency that the Javanese language used is shifting. The shift is characterized by various code system namely Indonesian, Basa, Ngoko, sometimes Krama, and even English.
