Abstract

FITRIA DEWI: This research aims to find out how the intonational pattern use in audio of listening course book through three primary system of intonations, those are tonality (unit of information), tonicity (focus of information) and tone (status of information). This research investigate intonational patterns are used in each sample of conversation in audio book and meaning construction used by the speakers in each conversation. 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 perspective which is taken from selected audio of conversations in “TOEIC 5thEdition listening course book” as a main data source to be analyzed by the researcher. Study of document becomes the only of technique of this research. This research also takes a qualitative method. The data is 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 data, precisely 66%. Moreover, the common pattern of markedness of tonality is unmarked tonality that has the larger sector than marked tonality which is around more than a half of clauses from 100 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 more than a half. It means that the speaker put information unit in non-final lexical items. Then, the pattern of intonation that used by the speakers are rise-fall which include of the common pattern of tone system, it is over a half of rise. It is about over a quarter. The meaning from intonation choices shows that the speakers mostly used rise intonation to convey a message to the listener. Usually rise intonation is used to command or asking something to someone. But in this research finding the researcher found mostly rise tone used for wh-question and imperative from the speaker. 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. Keywords: Intonation, Tonality, Tonicity, Tone, Marked, Unmarked, Stressing.
