Abstract

Transference of meaning deals with understanding a thing in terms of another. The objectives of the study are to describe the types of transference of meaning employed in the album Self-Title by Rage Against The Machine, the functions of transference of meaning and the themes reflected through the use of transference of meaning in the album. To achieve the three objectives, this research employed qualitative research. It was conducted by collecting any relevant data taken from the lyrics in the form of words, phrases, clauses and sentences which are related to the topic of the research. To gain trustworthiness, the researcher applied member checking by asking his two supervisors and students of English Literature to check and validate the data. This research reveals three findings. First, all of the types of transference of meaning are found. They are Metonymy, Synecdoche, Simile, Metaphor and Personification. Second, all of the functions of figurative language are found. They are to afford imaginative pleasure, to bring additional imagery, to bring emotional intensity and to say much in brief compass. Moreover, a figure of speech may bring more than one function in which some of them probably are the same as the functions brought by other figures of speech.Third, the employment of transference of meaning reflects four themes. They are Capitalism, Racism, Brainwashing and Rebellion. Furthermore, all of the figures of speech reflect more than one theme. In fact, some of them can reflect three themes.
