  scope and limitation, significance of the study, purposes of the study, and definition of key term.

  Language plays an important role in society. The main function of language is the instrument for communicating or interacting to other people. Language is the best instrument for communication. According to Holmes (1992: 12), people usually use language to ask for and give information to other people. Moreover, language is used for expressing feeling of indignation, annoyance, happiness, sadness, admiration, respect, etc. So, language simultaneously expresses both information and feeling.

  In daily life, no one can be separated from other people. They interact each other in a community to do something that they cannot do alone. They need to communicate to each other by using a language to convey information and utter their ideas, feelings, needs, desires, and expectations. Indeed, they do it in different ways.

  There are differences in the style used by people, such as style in speaking and writing. The different styles in speaking are known as speech style. According to Holmes (2001:246), speech style is the style people used by the speaker to face language variation which reflects changes in situational factors such as addressee, setting, social status, task or topic. The speaker here means someone is talking to whom, while the setting means the location where an event happens. Furthermore, the

  topic and function deal with what the conversation is about. There is no person who speaks precisely alike at all times (Wardhaugh, 2006). In addition, language style used to talk to others is not the same at all times although they use the same language. For example, the speech style used by a lecturer is different from that used by vendor. From that statement, it shows that one’s speech style can indicate the status of the addressor or addressee.

  Besides, no one converses the same style, and it is very important to know the speech style of the person we are talking to, so that we can use the appropriate style concerning with the situation, function and social context. Moreover, the speech style is very important to apply in communication because it can be chosen by a speaker as strategy to get attention from other people. For example, a lecturer in delivering lesson uses formal style to her students during the class. Here, the lecturer uses strategy in getting students’ attention by using formal style because she wants to be respected by her students during the class. Furthermore, the lecturer in any occasion may use another style; it depends on the listeners and situation surrounding. Iragiliati and Refnaldi(2007:4.21) define speech style as the style of speaking according to the social situation. While, according to Wardhaugh (2006:130), people are separated to one another by fine gradations of social class, regional origin, and occupation; by factor such as religion, gender and nationality; by psychological differences such as particular kinds of linguistic skills, e.g., verbality and literacy; and by personality characteristics.

  On the other hand, English becomes the language of global communication. It is read and spoken by so many people in the world from different cultures and

  

2

 

   

  nationalities. “More than 300 million people in the world speak English” (Bryson, 1990 : 11 ). English is considered as a symbol of modernization, a key to expend functional roles, an extra arm for success, mobility in culturally, linguistically complex and pluralistic societies. In comparison with other languages of wider communication, knowing English is like possesing the fabled Alladin’s lamp, which permits one to open, as it were, the linguistic gates to international business, technology, science, and travel. In short, English provides language of power. As medium of power, English has acquired intranational and internationally most important roles.

  Then, this study focuses on the speech styles used by the host in “Oprah

  

Winfrey” talk show program on “METRO TV”. “Oprah Winfrey” is a talk show

  program on “METRO TV” that is hosted by Oprah Winfrey. She was born on January. 29, 1954 (age 57) Kosciusko, Mississippi, United States. She is a celebrity and entrepreneur in the United States. Oprah is soared after she is being a host on Oprah Winfrey program.

  The writer expects that this thesis will be useful and give beneficial contribution to the society’s knowledge about language phenomena that happen around them, especially the use of speech style which is found in daily life. Furthermore, this study is expected to add knowledge of the students of English Study Program, who take linguistics major, because it can be a reference for their additional background of sociolinguistics, mainly about speech style. Moreover, this study can hopefully contribute some findings for other researchers who are interested

  in making further studies of speech style used in the conversation. This talk show program is chosen by the writer for a number of reasons, there are: First, the host’s speech styles are depend on the degree of formality and situation. Holmes (1992) says that the different speaker, different setting and different topic might express different styles. The host will use high style when they speak to a government official and use lower style to her/his friends.

  Second reason why the writer chooses “Oprah Winfrey” talk show is because the host, “Oprah Winfrey” can use various expressions. For example, she said: I meant that was one of the wonderful things in this world, etc. She often uses casual style to make the guest more being comfortable and relax during the program show.

  Third, that talk show program is enjoyable. Actually, the attractiveness of a talk show is the host. In every episode, she can cheer the guests and the audience up through her mimics, gestures, sometimes her words that make people laughing, so that the atmosphere will be relaxed and excited. Thus, this program gets the top rank among other talk show programs for several times.

  Based the above reasons, the writer is interested in investigating “Oprah Winsfrey” talk show program on “METRO TV”. The writer also wants to classify and investigate the host of “Oprah Winfrey” speech style.

  The writer takes the data from the conversations that are spoken by the host. The writer investigates every utterance that is spoken by the host. Besides, she tries to make the readers understand about every category of speech style by explaining and giving the readers some examples from the conversation in the “Oprah Winsfrey” program.

  2. What is the most type frequently used by the host in “Oprah Winfrey” talk show program on METRO TV?

  1. To identify the speech styles used by the host in “Oprah Winfrey” talk show program.

  2. To find out the most of speech style that is used by the host in “Oprah Winfrey” talk show program.

  1.4 Significance of the Study

  Hopefully through the findings of the study, the writer hopes the result of this thesis can make readers understand more clearly about speech style. Moreover, the writer hopes that her thesis will help the readers in order to compare the use of speech styles in daily life and those in the talk show program. The study can also be used as the basis for the other researchers who are interested in making further studies in speech styles.

  1.5 Scope and Limitation of the Study

  This research is a sociolinguistics study, which focuses on speech styles that differentiate to the five kinds of language: frozen style, formal style, consultative style, casual style, and intimate style. The writer limits the subject of the study only
