Abstract

DewiPatah Andi Putri : Exploring Intonation in Some Selected Audio Course book for Advanced Learners. This research aims to find out how do the speakers use intonation patterns in the Conversations. Then, to explore how do such function construct meaning in the conversations by the speaker. This research takes a qualitative method in analyzing data where the data is taken from audio’s TOEFL Post Test Longman Introductory Course for the Toefl Test as main data source to be analyzed in this research. The data collected by audio in the form of WAV then segmented using Speech Analyzer software analysis. There are some steps to analyze the data. First, the researcher analyzed the clause construction that consists of independent and dependent clause. Then, analyzed the tonality system that consists of tone group, markedness of tonality (marked and unmarked). Then, the researcher analyzed the tonicity system that consists of markedness of tonicity (marked and neutral tonicity). Besides, the researcher analyzed the tone system based on Speech Analyzer that will be connected to the construct meaning of intonation. The result of this analysis there are 199 clauses where those clauses will be followed b tone group or tone unit. Then, the speaker categorizes the tone group here depends on his/her message where the speaker can decide how many tone group will be put in this clauses; one clause can get one or two of tone unit. In the other hand tone unit has two important aspects are unmarked tonality and marked tonality as found in the conversation that the speaker put 95 (48 %) clauses that serves as unmarked tonality and 104 (52 %) clauses as serves marked tonality as found in the conversation. In the other hand, the speaker put 295 stressed syllables that consists of two stresses are neutral tonicity and marked tonicity. 250 (85 %) stress syllables for marked tonicity and 45 (15 %) stress syllables for neutral tonicity. Here means that the speaker dominated to choose marked stressed than neutral or it can be call by unmarked stress. Then, tone is construction by the speaker where the tone here means having decided the tonicity. Here, the speaker put types of tones that consist of fall, rise, fall-rise, and rise-fall. Essentially, the speaker gave the biggest percentage for fall tones that gets 155 clauses or for about 39 % as found in the conversation. Then, the second one is rise that gets 93 clauses or for about 32 %, the third one is fall-rise that gets 26 clauses or for about 9 %, for rise fall here get 21 % or for about 61 clauses as found in the conversation. Analyzing intonation is not only about good pronunciation, but also the way of speaker expressing and convoy a meaning. The meaning from intonation choices shows that the speaker be likely used fall tone to convey a message. It means that the speaker tells something to the listeners. In the fall tone that pronounced by the speaker conveys certain emotion, such as completion and confidence. The speaker, by choosing a falling tone, also indicates to the addressee that is all he has to say to the comment on, agree or disagree with. In every conversation the speaker used some rise tone to ask and from greeting when they used before conversation begins. It means that the speakers are friendly to talk to the second speaker or the listeners. Key words: Tonality, Tonicity, Tone, Meaning Construction of intonation.
