Abstract

This paper deals with the realization of commissive speech acts found in Javanese language which merely focus on Eastern-Javanese dialect especially in Bojonegoro and Surabaya regions. In fact, commissive speech acts function to commit to some future action, such as promises, plans, swears, threats, offers, and refusals. This paper is descriptive-qualitative study which describes and analyzes commissive speech acts realization in Eastern-Javanese dialect in society on their regular talk. The source of the data was commissive speech act utterances in Eastern-Javanese language. In addition, the data were collected by implementing observation method. Moreover, the data were gathered through the process of recording and also note-taking techniques. In exploring the problem, the sociopragmatic approach was implemented. This paper is intended to investigate how are the forms, uses and intentions of commissive speech acts of Eastern-Javanese language and also how the performative acts in commissive speech acts in the language were used. In addition, the data in this paper will be analyzed by using Illocutionary Force Indicating Devices (IFIDs) and felicity conditions. The results of the analysis show that the form of commissive speech acts, such as promises, plans, swears, threats, offers, and refusals can be characterized by word forms and its context. In addition, it can be seen that in commissive speech acts on Eastern-Javanese dialect, there are two forms of performative utterances, implicit and explicit. Both impicit and explicit utterances can be found in all category of commissive speech acts. However, the commissive speech acts in a form of swearing can only be seen in explicit way, since it must be expressed clearly and directly. Moreover, it can be also concluded that commissive speech act has great potential to build the interpersonal bound between the speaker and the listener by reducing the tension and also worries during the conversation.
