Abstract

The use of the Javanese language in the discourse of pocapan gara-gara (DPG) by Tristuti Rahmadi Suryasaputra includes various linguistic tools, namely: (1) The use of informal means for communication goals as to be attractive and comprehensible and so that the messages conveyed are easily captured by the audience. This encourages the presence of code mixing, interference, linguistic elements, and the shortened forms; (2) The situational aspect, which includes the speaker, hearer, situation, and the choice of topic, which in turn consists of social, moral educational, cultural, and political topics. The goal of the utterances in DPG is to convey social criticism, to give suggestions and reminders to the hearer (H), and to present satirical remarks about current or actual events.
