A SOCIOLINGUISTIC ANALYSIS OF BILLIARD JARGON EMPLOYED BY BILLIARD COMMUNITY IN YOGYAKARTA By Ardiyanto 032224068 ABSTRACT This research aims at identifying the forms of billiard jargon, revealing the meanings of the jargon, and describing the functions of the jargon employed by billiard community in Yogyakarta. This research employed a descriptive qualitative method. The data of the research were jargons employed by the billiard community that are commonly used in the billiard tournament. The jargons were in the spoken form. The techniques of collecting data were observations and interviews. The key instrument of this research was the researcher himself because he himself watched and wrote anything dealing with the research. The trustworthiness of data analysis was done through triangulation. i.e. discussing and analizing the data with experts who were eligible and competent to the research. The findings of the research reveal that there are 110 jargon items in the billiard tournament in Yogyakarta. The jargons are in the form of word, phrase, abbreviation, and acronym. Most of the jargons are in the form of phrases with 54 jargon items (49.09%). This implies that phrases are the most prominent form. According to the meaning categorization, the meanings of jargons in the billiard tournament are mostly the denotative meaning with 88 jargon items (80%). This implies that the literal meanings are much more understandable. Based on the functions of jargon, most of the jargons were to provide speakers of a subgroup with a means of marking in-group membership and excluding outsiders with 80 jargon items (72.73%). This implies that the jargons in the billiard tournament are used to provide special terms as a mark that they belong to one of the billiard community member
