Abstract

NUR AULIYA RAHMAWATI: Writing is generally recognized as a difficult task for EFL learners (especially in the discourse level) and it could be fixed by analyzing the thematic progression patterns in their writing. These different patterns of thematic progression would be used in different text types, such as narrative. The purpose of the study is to analyze the thematic progression patterns in selected EFL learner’s narrative text. This study is based on Danes and Eggins theory (in Paltridge, 2006:148). This study focuses on how the using of thematic progression patterns in three EFL learner’s narrative text and what the type of thematic progression most commonly used in three EFL learner’s narrative text. The method of this study was qualitative approach. The respondent of data is taken from three EFL learner’s narrative text entitled “The Little Red Riding Hood and The Big-white-wolf by #R1”, “Another The Little Red Riding Hood Story by #R2” and “Little Red Riding Hood And Ticks by #R3” when they were in second semester of English Language Teaching Department of IAIN Syekh Nurjati. The validity data in this research are credibility, dependibility, and transferability. This study employed discourse analysis or document analysis as the technique of collecting and it used to analyze how the using of three thematic progression patterns and what type of thematic progression most commonly used in EFL learner’s narrative text. The result shows that the constant theme and the zig-zag theme pattern always exists on the orientation, complication and resolution stage. On the other hand, multiple theme pattern only found on the orientation and complication stage but rarely found on the resolution stage. Furthermore, this study exposes that the constant theme pattern is the type of thematic progression pattern that most commonly used in narrative text (52%), than zig-zag theme patterns (36%) and multiple theme patterns (12%). Thus, the thematic progression is really important for structuring of information and keep the text coherent (Eggins, 1994 :303-305). Furthermore, the thematic progression pattern that most commonly used in EFL learner’s narrative text especially fable is constant theme pattern and these patterns would be found in another types of narrative text such as myth, legend, and fairy. Therefore, EFL learner should aware on the discourse level of writing especially the using of thematic progression. Key words: Thematic Progression, Theme-Rheme, Narrative Text
