Abstract

Refusal is an important thing and it cannot be avoided in human’s social interaction. Refusal makes the interlocutor feels uncomfortable. Refusal, like other speech acts, occurs in all of the languages. The speech act of refusal has been researched by many linguists. However, in the context of The Great Gatsby 2013 movie, it has not been found. The subject of the study is the script itself. This research has three problem statements, i.e. how refusal strategies are used by the characters in the movie, how the orders of semantic formula of refusals are, and how politeness strategies are applied in their refusals. To find out the answer, the writer applies a theory of refusal strategies and Bebee, Takahashi, and Uliss- Weltz’s classification of semantic formula. Then, the writer utilizes Brown and Levinson’s politeness strategies to analyze the politeness strategies of refusals. Hence, the writer uses a descriptive qualitative method in analyzing this research. The result of this analysis shows that there are 5 types of refusals applied by the characters. They are direct refusal, direct refusal + adjunct, indirect refusal, indirect refusal + adjunct, mixture of direct and indirect refusal. However, the result presents that most of the characters prefer to use indirect refusals. Furthermore, most characters in the movie usually applies at least two or more than two (3/4) orders of semantic formula. In addition, this research shows that there are 6 types of politeness strategies, they are bald on record, positive politeness, negative politeness, off record, mixture of strategies, and say nothing strategy. Most characters in the movie prefer to use positive politeness strategy in the form of giving a reason than the other strategies.
