Abstract

Directive speech acts intent to make other people to do something. The speaker tries to get another person to take action. Keith Allan (1986) puts directive speech acts into six categories; requestives, questions, reqirements, prohibitive, permissive and advisories. This study attempts to seek directive speech acts in the compilation of Betawinese short stories Sebelas Colen di Malam Lebaran: Setangkle Cerita Betawi written by Chairil Gibran Ramadhan, and classifies them based on the six types of directive speech acts proposed by Allan (1986). Since directive speech acts show the relationship between the speaker and the hearer, it is of interest to reveal the politeness strategy as it is used to show awareness of another person’s face related to social distance or closeness. This study is expected to provide findings of how Betawinese as potrayed in the characters of short stories Sebelas Colen di Malam Lebaran: Setangkle Cerite Betawi choose the politeness strategy to deliver their directive speech acts. Four strategies of politeness proposed by Brown and Levinson (1987) will be used in this study. Qualitative method will be applied to determine the type of directive speech acts and the type of politeness strategy.
