Abstract

This research is under psycholinguistics umbrella. The aim of the study is to analyze the linguistic phenomena of schizophrenia suffered by Mary, the main character in Canvas movie. This research has two objectives: (1) to describe the language abnormalities experienced by a schizophrenic in Canvas movie; (2) to show and explain the accompanying behaviours acted by a schizophrenic in Canvas movie. This research employed a descriptive qualitative method. It is concerned with the description of the data in the form of utterances produced by the schizophrenic, Mary, in Canvas movie. However, numbers were also used to support the analysis of the data. Some steps in analyzing the data were: identifying the raw data, classifying each datum into the categorization, analyzing each datum, interpreting each datum based on its theories, reporting the findings, and drawing the conclusion. Finally, the data findings were triangulated by three linguistics students who were keen on psycholinguistics. The findings of the research show that first, among the eight types of schizophrenic language abnormalities, only five of them occur. They are perseveration of ideas, non-logical reasoning (peculiar logic), looseness, weakening of goal, and poverty of speech. Meanwhile, the absent types are peculiar use of word, peculiar sentence, and distractibility. Perseveration of ideas is the most-often appearing phenomenon made by a schizophrenic who always repeats the same word, phrase, and even sentence continuously. Besides, the other types have only small occurrences since they are not common abnormalities mainly found. Second, the deviant behaviours which are accompanied by a schizophrenic are also shown in the movie. The other deviant behaviours i.e. aggression, painting, affective flattening, and unnecessary use of water, have the most-often occurring phenomena in the schizophrenic.
