Lakoff (1975) says that women use language which reinforces their subordinate status: They are colluding in their subordination by the way they speak. Therefore, Lakoff proceeds to draw up a list of features which supposedly represent typical female discourse, as distinct from male talk. Based on her opinion, those speech features express uncertainty and lack of confidence. This study is held to verify the use of women?s speech features by female VJs of MTV Indonesia. The reason of choosing MTV Indonesia?s female VJs is because they are totally different from the eastern women in general, and the differences seem to be very interesting to be noted.This study of women?s language is elaborated into the dominant and the least features used. In this study, the writer notes and takes records the conversations between two female VJs of Mtv Indonesia while they are presenting the programs. From this observation, by separating each utterance, the writer is able to identify the kinds of speech feature, the most common features and the least feature used by female VJs of MTV Indonesia. From the findings, the writer found that both VJ Nirina and VJ Denise adopted women?s speech features. The most common feature used by VJ Nirina and VJ Denise is lexical hedges or fillers. The least features used by VJ Denise are tag question, “superpolite” form and avoidance of strong swear words. The least feature used by VJ Nirina was “empty” adjectives. From the findings, the writer can conclude that both of them might have tendency to be lack of self-confidence. The findings show that Robin Lakoff as the pioneer in the finding of women?s speech features theory in 1975, still can be considered as appropriate used until now on. It shows that Robib Lakoff is a smart and diligent person.

The writer is interested in investigating request since request can be used differently by her surrounding. The writer wants to know the type of request used by Chinese Indonesian female employers to their younger and older servants. Then, the writer also wants to know the factors that influence the use of the type of requests, whether it could be the power distance or the age of the addressee. The writer predicted that there are some differences in making requests to the younger and older servants. Here, the writer used Ervinn-Tripp?s theory of request to classify the type of request. The writer also uses structured interview as the way in getting the data. To find the most frequently used type of request used by Chinese Indonesia female employers, the writer used quantitative approach, whereas to interpret the data, the writer used structured and unstructured interview. The writer found that there are no differences in the frequency of the type of request used by Chinese Indonesian female employers both to younger and older servants. The result of this research showed that most of Chinese Indonesian females used bald imperatives as their type of request, both to their younger and older servants. However, Chinese Indonesia female employers used bald imperatives with the use of word tolong, sorry, hedges and use of address term to show their respect and another social factors that could not be analyzed. Thus, the result might prove that the power distance has influenced more to the type of request than the age of the addressee.

This is a study of refusal strategies that are used by grown-up Chinese Indonesian sons and daughters toward their parents? requests in Surabaya. The writer wants to seek whether there is any significance difference between sons and daughters in using refusal strategies toward their mother?s and father? requests in every situation. In conducting the research, the writer used Discourse Completion Test (DCT), the most appropriate elicitation technique that enables to obtain more stereotyped responses in a large sample, which is in the form of questionnaire. The questionnaires consisted of five requests from father and five requests from mother in given situations. The requests were arranged from the easiest task to the most difficult task to be accomplished. The writer used five Kartomihardjo?s models of refusal styles, namely by using the word “no”, giving reason, conditional, suggestion, and non-verbal (keep silent) as the main theory and put them in the questionnaire as the choices to respond the requests. The writer also provided a blank space in each request. In order to make the data become more accurate, easy to be interpreted and to test whether there is any significant difference between the sons? and daughters? refusal strategies, the writer used statistics. The findings show that both sons and daughters tend to use strategy no.2 (giving reason) and strategy no.3 (conditional) towards father and strategy no.3 (conditional) toward mother. However, based on the statistics result there is no significant difference between sons and daughters in using refusal strategies both toward mother?s and father?s requests. Besides the refusal, the writer also finds the side results, which are gained from the answers out of Kartomihardjo?s five refusal strategies in the blank spaces provided in each request. Mostly sons and daughters accept the easiest requests both from mother and father. The significant difference is found in accepting the mother?s request no.3 and father?s request no.3. These significant differences of acceptance by sons and daughters may be influenced by the situation of the request, which affects them to accept it. At last, it can be concluded that both sons and daughters have no significant difference in using refusal strategies. The sons and daughters are more situational oriented in responding the requests.

This thesis is a study of conversational code switching in Ni Hao Ma program of Suzana FM in Surabaya. The program uses Mandarin and Indonesian as the base languages and other codes such as Javanese, English and Malaysian as complement. Such characteristics make the program more interesting to follow. Therefore, this study is an attempt at making a description of the functional types and switched elements of conversational code switching as used in Ni Hao Ma program by analyzing the languages used by the speakers in the dialogues. The writer uses the theory on conversational code switching by Gumperz (1982) as the main theory. From the findings and analysis, the writer finds that there are six functional types of conversational code switching, i.e. quotation, addressee specification, interjection, reiteration, message qualification, personalization vs objectivization. Moreover, there are three levels of switched elements namely word, phrase and sentence. The result shows that conversational code switching having the functional type of interjection is more dominant than the other functions because these functions mostly appear in spontaneous ways. Next, the switched element on the level of word is the highest occurrences. It mostly happens in conversational code switching in the types of interjection. Finally, the conversational code switching can give a fresh nuance to the hearers. Therefore, the program of Ni Hao Ma could be very gratifying because the participants may switch the codes whenever they want.
