This research analyzes repair phenomena in the interview session in the first five episodes of Ellen DeGeneres Show season 11. It focuses on analyzing the types of repair and repair operations. Descriptive qualitative method was employed in this research since the data of this research were in the forms of words, clauses, and sentences containing repair phenomenon. Quantitative method was also employed to measure the frequency of occurrences of types of repair and repair operations. In analyzing the data, textual analysis was employed in this research. In addition, trustworthiness of the data was achieved through triangulation. The research findings show that all types of repair occur in the talk show. Self-initiated self-completed repair has the highest frequency of occurrence since the trouble sources mostly occurred inside the speaker’s mind. Also, the speaker of the trouble source can provide the repair by himself within the same turn. On the other hand, other-initiated other-completed repair is the most rarely employed repair because this type is often perceived as threatening the speaker’s face. Among 16 repair operations, there are only 12 repair operations occurred in the first five episodes of Ellen DeGeneres Show season 11. They are replacing, inserting, deleting, aborting, searching, parenthesizing, recycling, reformatting, reordering, confirmation, explanation, and combination. Replacing is the most often occurring repair operation because the trouble sources mostly related to the use of wrong words, or slip of the tongue. In contrast, sequence-jumping, repeat, rephrasing, and rejection never occurred in the show. Sequence-jumping does not occur because the dialogues are happened in interview session, therefore, the participants cannot suddenly change the topic. Meanwhile, repeat and rephrasing do not occur because the participants do not experience hearing or understanding problem. Rejection does occur in the show however, it always followed with another operation. The research findings also show that there is a new operation occurred, that is, clarification.
