Abstract

This research aims to (1) find outthe types of swearing uttered by the main characters in Pulp Fiction movie, and to (2) observe the reasons for swearing uttered by the main characters in Pulp Fiction movie. In order to analyze swearwords which emerge within the movie, sociolinguistic approach is employed by the researcher. This research used descriptive qualitativemethod in order to describe the findings of swearing phenomena and the discussion deeply. Moreover, quantitative method wasalso employed to support the interpretation of the data by displaying fixed percentages in numerical form. The data were in the form of utterances uttered by the two main characters, Vincent Vega and Butch Coolidge, while the contexts of the data were the dialogues between them which contain swearwords. The sources of data were the transcripts of each scene which involve the main characters in it. The data were collected and analyzed by categorizing the utterances which contain swearwords based on the objectives of the research and matching the transcripts within the movie carefully. The primary instrument of this research was the researcher,supported by the data sheet as the secondary instrument. The trustworthiness of the data was gainedby triangulation. The results of this research are stated as follows. Firstly, five types of swearing uttered by the main characters in Pulp Fictionare dysphemistic, abusive, idiomatic, emphatic, and cathartic swearing. From sixty three data found in the movie, emphatic swearing becomes the most frequently used type of swearing. Emphatic swearing is mostly used by the main characters because it is considered as mild swearing in which it is not really provoking the listeners while hear it. Moreover, emphatic swearing is used in order to emphasize the statement of the main characters. The least frequently used type of swearing is abusive swearing. Abusive swearing becomes the least used swearing uttered by the main characters since employing it is considered as inefficient in which it totally intimidates or downgrades the pride of the listeners. Secondly, three reasons for swearing are found in the movie, i.e. psychological motives, social motives, and linguistic motives. Social motives become the most frequently used reason for swearing since mostly the main characters employ swearwords triggered by the people in their surroundings. Psychological motives become the least motive used by the main characters since their use only occurs when the characters employ swearwords for themselves.
