Abstract

BSTRACT This research is under the issue of stylistics approach since it explores the figures of speech applied in Coraline novel. It is aimed at identifying the types and functions of figures of speech by comparison in the novel. This research applied descriptive qualitative method. However, to support the interpretation, the researcher also applied quantitative approach in processing the data. The forms of the data were the dialogues of all characters and expressions of the narration in Neil Gaiman’s Coraline which contains figures of speech by comparison. In this research, textual analysis was used in the analysis of data. Triangulation was used to establish the reliability of data, and to ensure the findings so that it can enhance trustworthiness. The researcher found that there are four types of figures of speech by comparison proposed by Perrine which are applied by Neil Gaiman in Coraline novel. Those types are simile (79 data), personification (46 data), metaphor (15 data), and apostrophe (1 datum). The author only applies one apostrophe because of its complexity. The most frequently used type of figures of speech by comparison is simile. The writer used simile often to give a better picture of a certain situation or characteristic of a certain character. Bringing additional imagery and giving imaginative pleasure are the main functions of the use of figures of speech by comparison in Coraline novel because figures of speech often make concrete understanding and pleasure in readers’ mind. However, there are also other functions. Those are giving imaginative pleasure, adding emotional intensity, and concreting meaning in a brief compass.
