Abstract

Fatimah (14121310291) Exploring Intonation in Some Selected Audio of Listening Course Book for Beginners This research aims to find out how the intonational pattern and meaning construction used by the speakers in each conversation that taken from audio of listening course book through three primary system of intonation, those are tonality (unit of information), tonicity (focus of information) and tone (status of information). In this research, the researcher used “speech analyzer” software that will be connected to intonational pattern. Design of the research is discourse analyses in phonological persfective which is taken from selected audio of conversations in “Interchange Intro 3rd Edition listening course book” as a main data source to be analyzed by the researcher. Study of document becomes the technique of this research. This research also takes a qualitative method. The data collected by audio in the form of WAV then segmented using “Speech Analyzer”software analysis. The analyses process is constructed based on the common pattern of tonality, tonicity and tone by Dorothy M chun and Paul Tench. The result shows that the common pattern of clause that is used by each speaker in each conversation is independent clause that has the largest sector, precisely 90%. Further, the common pattern of markedness of tonality is unmarked tonality that has the larger sector than marked tonality which is around three quarter of clauses from 165 clauses. It is clear that the speakers’ tonality boundaries coincide with clause boundaries. The finding results of common pattern of tonicity as found in each of conversation shows that marked tonicity has the larger sector than neutral tonicity that has nearly a third. It means that the speaker put information unit in nonfinal lexical items. Then, the pattern of intonation that used by the speakers are risefall which include of the common pattern of tone system, it is over a half of rise-fall or 53%. Further, the amount of rise is roughly a quarter or 21% and also roughly a quarter for fall tone. The last is fall-rise tone, the amount is 5%. The meaning from intonation choices shows that the speakers mostly used rise-fall to convey a message to the listener. Usually rise-fall is used to command someone. But in this research finding the researcher found mostly rise-fall tone used for wh- question and statement from the speaker. Further, the speaker used fall or rise-fall in each conversation for a question even if the question usually takes rise tone. It means that the speakers do, in fact, know the basic proposition of the message, but there is a gap that affects full knowledge. In every conversation, every speaker impressed that they are friendly and enthuses to talk to the listener or the second speaker. It can be seen from greeting that they used before conversation begins and the some rise tone to ask the listener. It is clear that all of the results show each speaker conveyed information clearly. Key words: Intonation, Some selected audio, Listening course, Beginners.
