Abstract

The objectives of this research are (1) to identify the types of commands employed by the main character in the film entitled Elizabeth: the Golden Age, (2) to find out the forms of commands used by the main character in the film entitled Elizabeth: the Golden Age, and (3) to know the strategies of how commands are expressed by the main character in the film entitled Elizabeth: the Golden Age. This research applied a descriptive qualitative approach. The data of this research were in the forms of dialogues in the transcript or text of the film Elizabeth: the Golden Age which indicate speech act of commands. The sources of the data were the film Elizabeth: the Golden Age and its script. In collecting the data, the film was watched; the transcript was reread and re-transcribed comprehensively and interpretatively. The data were, then, identified using the limitation provided, coded into the data sheets, interpreted as what are found based on the context of each datum, discussed into a deeper story lined explanation, and then concluded for the research questions. The results of the research are as follows. Firstly, there are two types of commands uttered by the main character in Elizabeth: the Golden Age. The most dominant of the types is direct commands. It shows that most of commands in this film are to show the authority of the main character. Secondly, there are seven forms of commands which occur in Elizabeth: the Golden Age. The forms which are included in direct commands are base form of verb, imperative + modifier and let + first person pronoun, while the forms which are indirect commands are you + imperatives, embedded agent, verb ellipsis, and hints. In the application of the forms, the main character mostly applies base form of verb in commanding people since it is the simplest and clearest form. Lastly, in the way of expressing commands, the main character proposes four strategies. They include bald on record, positive politeness, negative politeness, and off record. Bald on record is mostly applied by the main character since she is a queen and has the greater authority among the others. Keywords: the film Elizabeth: the Golden Age, speech acts of commands, politeness strategy
