The Variations of Diction in Advocating News from Some Islamic Media in Indonesia

Drs. Ayub Khan, M.Si.


Abstract: . This study is aimed to describe the diction that used in some selected texts from some mass media; Sabili Magazine (SM), Media Umat Monthly News (MU), and Suara Hidayatullah Magazine (SHM). The analysis of the diction in the texts is categorized into two main features: (1) the diction used to criticize, to blame, and to scold the repressive and discriminative agents (2) the diction used to describe, to report the suffering of the victims. This research uses qualitative method, a critical discourse analysis approach, by Fowler model and the theory of diction. The analysis is focused on the variation of diction in the news texts. The study found that the three Islamic media applied the same feature in advocating their news but they used the different variations of diction. From the analysis, we can conclude that the advocating news of those three Islamic media utilize two variations of diction, i. e. a good style and a bad style. The good style employs common diction and whereas the bad one uses such as sarcastic, cynical and hyperbolical diction.
