    Abstract

    Natalia Dany Parastika. C0304037. The Analysis of Phatic Communion Employed by the Characters in the Movie Entitled JUNO (A Sociopragmatics Approach), English Departement, Faculty of Letters and Fine Arts, Sebelas Maret University, Surakarta, 2009. This research was conducted to describe the forms of phatic communion employed by characters in the movie entitled JUNO and also why the characters employ the forms of phatic communion. This research used the socio-pragmatics approach. This research was a descriptive qualitative research. It employed total sampling technique. The dialogs containing the phatic communion were taken as data. The result of the analysis can be seen as follows: First, there are four forms of phatic communion employed by the characters in the movie entitled JUNO, namely ritual words that are exchanged when people meet, standard topic of conversation, supportive chat and meaningless word or misunderstood words. Second, the characters employ forms of phatic communion because of some reasons. In the form of ritual exchanged when people meet, the speakers usually employ this form because they just want to greet one and another. The form of standard topic of conversation is a topic of conversation that is too standard and not too specific. The speakers employ this form because they want to strike up the relationship. The topic of conversation is usually about the weather, someone’s health, etc. The speakers employ supportive chat form because this conversation does not deliver any new information but full of empathy and solidarity. It often takes the form of compliments, empathy and repetitions, both self-repetition and other repetition. The speakers employ meaningless words or misunderstood form because they want to maintain and keep the conversation going. Phatic communion occurs both in formal or informal situation and the relationship between the participants can be intimate or distant. It can happen in both higher and lower status. The atmosphere is commonly good but if the atmosphere is bad, phatic communion utterances will help to turn into the good one. The attitude of the participants while uttering phatic communion utterances is usually sympathetic. It can be seen from the low tone. At last, phatic communion functions to establish and maintain social relationship between people in society.
