Expressive Speech Act: The Story Dewaruci Plays Work of Dalang Nartasabda

Dr. Sri Hesti Heriwati [2]


Abstract: Each wayangperformance is expected to be able to convey a message that can motivate a satisfying aesthetics experience in addition to other objectives. This study aimed toexplain the relevance of Expressive Illocutionary Acts (Tindak Tutur Ekspresif/TTE) functions revealed in Dewarucistory, in the implementation of character education, and to contribute understanding and enrichment to the pragmatics applied to the performing arts objects. Pragmatics study is not limited to language studies only. It reveals the meaning embodied in the performing arts comprehensively and profoundly through Pragmatics. Performing arts that use verbal language as a useful medium are used to express the intent or content logically. Thus, pragmatic science is a new discourse and continues to be developed and needs to be followed up to reveal the meaning of art performances thoroughly. Pragmatics is a branch of language that studies the structure of language externally that is how the language unit used in communication, and therefore, it is a study of language that includes the level of macrolinguistics. Kreidler (1998 183) defines the classification of acts of illocution, such as Expressive Illocutionary Acts (Tindak Tutur Ekspresif/TTE) as a speech act done with the intention that his speech is interpreted as an evaluation of what is mentioned in the utterance. The worldview for the Javanese is its pragmatics value to reach a state of certain psychics, namely calmness, tranquility, and inner balance. The Expressive Illocutionary Acts submitted by the dalang often contain messages, such as moral, spiritual, educational, enlightenment, etc. TTE presented by the dalang contains messages of character education or personality.
