Abstract

The purpose of this study is to explain the politeness strategies used by the main characters in both The Scarlet Letter and Easy A. This study investigates the utterances from the main characters of both films on the area of refusal. The data taken are in spoken form and only those which contains refusals. In analyzing data, the writer used descriptive analysis with a qualitative approach. The data are analyzed using Brown and Levinson‟s theory of politeness strategy (1987). Based on Brown and Levinson‟s model of politeness strategy (1987), the politeness strategies used in conversations to reduce the FTA are grouped into four main super-strategies: Bald on Record, Positive Politeness, Negative Politeness, and Off-the-Record. The results of the analysis show that the main characters of both movies tend to refuse things by using bald on record super-strategy. Using Brown and Levinson‟s politeness strategies, the writer found the types and the percentage of strategies used: Bald on record is 13 cases (46.4%), Positive politeness is 3 cases (10.2%), Negative politeness is 2 cases (7.1%) and Off record is 10 cases (35.6%). Besides, the results also shows that bald on record strategy is the most widely used by Hester Prynne of The Scarlet Letter and Olive Penderghast of Easy A; It may happen due to the condition and the situation of the conversations where the people communicate there may not really concern on the others‟ attention. Moreover, the result shows that there are some differences of refusal cases between The Scarlet Letter and Easy A, following: the word choice, sentences structures and the politeness strategies used. It can be said that the differences appear for some reasons, complaining, expressing and avoiding anger, expressing disagreement, and praising self.
