Abstract

The objectives of this research are to describe the types of presupposition used by the main character in Hotel Transylvania movie and to interpret the implied meaning of the main characters‟ utterances in Hotel Transylvania movie. Yule‟s theory of presupposition and Holmes‟ theory of context are used by the researcher to answer the formulated research questions. This research is a qualitative study applying descriptive-qualitative method. The subject of this research is a movie entitled Hotel Transylvania directed by Genndy Tartakovsky. The data were some scenes including the utterances said by speaker and heard by hearer. The data analysis was conducted by classifying and categorizing the data to find the inferences. The triangulation method was applied to gain the trustworthiness of the data by consulting his findings with his consultants and friends. The findings of the research are as follows: in Hotel Transylvania, all Yule‟s six types of presupposition are found. Those six types of presupposition are Existential Presupposition (12.5%), Factive Presupposition (15%), Non-Factive Presupposition (5%), Lexical Presupposition (20%), Structural Presupposition (20%), and Counter Factual Presupposition (27.5%). Then the Counter Factual Presupposition is the most-used type of presupposition. On the other hand, Non-Factive Presupposition is the least-used type of presupposition found in the conversations between the characters in Hotel Transylvania movie. The implied meanings in the conversation are gained by analyzing the context because in pragmatic study, context is essential to figure out the implied meaning. The context of the conversation between the characters in Hotel Transylvania is gained through four factors. They are (1) the participants, (2) the setting or social context of the interaction, (3) the topic of the conversation, and (4) the function of the conversation.
