In producing text, there are some factors affected. Context which is one important influential factor needs to be analyzed. On the other hand, conversation as a media of exchanging meaning among the speakers are done in order to fulfill speaker aim. Pragmatics that learns meaning is seen as the best media to learn meaning produced by both speakers related to the context. By using interactional sociolinguistics, as a part of conversation analysis in pragmatics, this approach takes pragmatic and sociolinguistics aspects of interaction, as well as adjacency pairs, turn-taking and sequences, giving importance to the way that language is situated in particular circumstances in social life.

The method used in this study is a qualitative method that produces descriptive data and note-taking techniques. The source of data in this study was the conversation of the hypnotized and hypnotized speakers. The data examined in the study were oral hypnotic utterances that had been transcribed in written form. The data are successively identified, classified, and described based on pragmatic theory. Techniques Data analysis is carried out using the principle of cooperation which consists of maxim of quality, maxim of quantity, maxim of relevance and maxim of implementation. The results of this study indicate that hypnotic speech uses maxim of quantity more often than other maxims. The maxim of quantity requires each participant to contribute as much or as much speech as needed by the interlocutor, this is related to the hypnosis used is the subject's subconscious so that there are imperative sentences, namely commands, then there is an if-then pattern. The subject of hypnosis: will say a sentence that he thinks there is logic in the sentence. Basically, the use of hypnotic language implements Grice's principle of cooperation between the hypnostist and the hypnotic subject.</p> Indah Afrianti Sri Asmiatiningsih Copyright (c) 2021 Epigram https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 2021-10-25 2021-10-25 18 2 A NEEDS ANALYSIS ON STAKEHOLDERS AND ELT STUDENTS TO DEVELOP ENGLISH FOR TOURISM COURSE MATERIAL https://jurnal.pnj.ac.id/index.php/epigram/article/view/4137 <p>This study investigates the needs of tourism stakeholders and students of the English Education Department to develop the English for Tourism (EFT) course material.

The purpose of this study is to find out on how the teacher's questioning strategy can improve students' speaking skills through the PPP method when using Whatsapp application as a teaching aid during the pandemic. Data collection methods used are observation, test, questionnaire, and interview. In this study, researchers used mixed method research. This study uses data collection by using quantitative data supported by qualitative data. This study attempts to test the teacher's questioning strategy with PPP in an effort to improve students' English speaking skills. The results showed that during the pre-test the average score was 62.4 and the average the post-test score was 73.7. After practicing speaking using the PPP method, the students' speaking ability in English has increased which can be seen from the comparison between the pre-test and the post-test where the student's speaking ability assessment score increases up to 18%. In this study, a paired t-test was also employed to measure the significant improvement in students' English speaking skills with the result that the t-test score (2.806) was greater than the t-table (2.048) at a significance level of 0.05 and degrees of freedom (df) 14. (N-1 = 15-1) where N is the number of students, therefore the alternative hypothesis (H1) is accepted and the null hypothesis (Ho) is rejected. Based on the results of the comparison of students' scores on the pre-test and the post-test as well as observations made during the study using the interview and questionnaire method, it can be concluded that the teacher's questioning strategy combined with the use of the Present, Practice, Production (PPP) method can improve students' English speaking skills using WhatsApp during pandemic period</p> Ray Suryadi Bimas Reskiawan Copyright (c) 2021 Epigram https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 2021-10-25 2021-10-25 18 2 THE STUDENTS’ FAMILIARITY TOWARD ENGLISH PHRASAL VERBS: A CORPUS-BASED STUDY https://jurnal.pnj.ac.id/index.php/epigram/article/view/4138 <p>A phrasal verb is considered a challenging area for foreign language learners including those who learn English for specific purposes e.g English for tourism. However, to gain a good level of English, the students must learn phrasal verbs as they are commonly used by native English speakers. This study aimed to know the phrasal verb found in English for Tour and Travel Corpus (ETTC) and whether the students are familiar with the phrasal verbs found by differentiating them with prepositional verbs. The students’ familiarity was measured through a questionnaire and their ability to use them in speaking. ETTC was built from 100 articles related to Tour and Travel, and the annotation using CLAWS 7 was conducted to identify the phrasal verb found in the corpus. Then, the phrasal verbs were listed based on the lemma. Based on the result of the analysis, there are 172 multi-word verbs classified as phrasal verbs. The students who were expected to have already been familiar with them were not able to differentiate between phrasal verbs and prepositional verbs. More interestingly, they do not know all the meaning of phrasal verbs found in ETTC and the speaking test result also proved that using phrasal verbs still needed more effort as the students could not use them accurately. The result of this research can be preliminary data for further research, particularly in teaching and learning English for a specific purpose.</p> Andi Rizki Fauzi Copyright (c) 2021 Epigram https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 2021-10-25 2021-10-25 18 2 POLA PEMBANGUNAN MAKNA IMAJINER PADA PUISI KONTEMPORER DI RUBRIK PUISI REPUBLIKA.CO.ID DAN RAHMA.ID https://jurnal.pnj.ac.id/index.php/epigram/article/view/4126 <p>Starting from the importance of literacy, various types of writing should be presented properly. However, the facts on the ground are not as they should be, there are still many writings that are not so creative and even seem monotonous. Not to mention when it comes to the works of poetry imagination. In addition, the writing technique is quite complicated and full of rules. Therefore, the purpose of this research is to find and describe the pattern of constructing imaginary meaning in contemporary poetry. The approach used is Rifatterre's semiotic concept. Through the hermeneutic analysis of contemporary poetry uploaded to the rubrics of Republika.co.id and rahma.id poetry, the results of the analysis of imaginary meaning patterns in poetry are obtained. Of the six poems analyzed, 54 patterns of displacing meaning quotes were found, 18 patterns of distorting meaning quotes, and 9 patterns of creating meaning quotes.</p> Eris Risnawati Misbah Nursalim Copyright (c) 2021 Epigram https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 2021-10-25 2021-10-25 18 2 DAMPAK SELF-ESTEEM TERHADAP PSYCHOLOGICAL WELL BEING DIMEDIASI OLEH WORK-LIFE BALANCE https://jurnal.pnj.ac.id/index.php/epigram/article/view/4090 <p>This study was conducted in order to see the relationship among work-life balance, self-esteem, and psychological well-being at work, especially in bank sector where work pressure is intense. 150 questionnaires were distributed to staff at banks in Banda Aceh City, Indonesia.
