Nurtaqwa Amin, H.Najmuddin H. Abdul Safa, H. Muhammad Darwis, Tadjuddin Maknun

Abstract: This study concerns with directive imperative speech acts in Al-Quran. It aims to revel types of directive imperative speech acts used in Alquran, as well as the functions of the directive speech acts. The study applies the pragmatics approach and a contextual method. Data are analyzed using an informal method. Results of the study show that there are four types of directive imperative speech acts used in Alquran, namely (1) direct speech acts that are formed in imperative sentences, (2) indirect speech acts formed in declarative sentences, (3) literal speech acts, and (4) non-literal speech acts. The directive speech acts in Alquran function to command, to prohibit, to advise, to call upon, as well as to show hopes, to remind, and to express prayers (supplications).
