Abstract

RISA MEILANI: This research was intended to know tonality, tonicity, and tone (3T) used by students as EFL learners, to know the common patterns of 3T in EFL learners‟ storytelling and to know what tonality tells about unit of information (tonality), focus of information (tonicity) and status of information (tone). This research aims to find out what pattern of intonation that students use in their storytelling. Also to identify how interpersonal meaning constructed by pattern of intonation in the students‟ storytelling. There are some steps to analyze the data. The researcher analyzed the clause construction that consists of dependent and independent clause. Then, analyzed the tonality system that consists of tone group, markedness of tonality (neutral and marked). Then, the researcher analyzed the tonicity system that consists of markedness of tonicity (neutral and marked). Further, the researcher analyzed the tone system based on “Speech Analyzer Software” that connected to the three primary system of intonation. Then, the researcher analyzed interpersonal meaning that constructed by pattern of intonation in students‟ storytelling based on “Speech Analyzer Software‟‟. Design of the research is discourse analysis in phonological perspective which takes a place in EFL learners‟ recording in the form of storytelling. The data is taken from EFL students‟ recording of the narrative as the main data of this research. There are some steps to analyze the data. The data is collected by observation and documentation. This research use a qualitative method in analyzing the data. The analysis process is design together with the data sampling collection which based on : (1). The common pattern of tonality, tonicity, and tone by Tench (2011) (2). Interpersonal meaning constructed by pattern of intonation in the students‟ storytelling by Tench (2011). The result of this analysis shows that there are different EFL learners‟ division of message between systematic functional grammar level and intonation level. There are 32 clauses that found on the text. 23 clauses or 72% are categorized into the independent clause, and then 9 clauses or 28% are categorized into dependent clauses. There are 121 tone units from three respondents. Neutral tonality is the domination with 77% values and there are 23% marked tonality. Then, for tonicity, respondents put 31% neutral tonicity and 69% marked tonicity. The common patterns of tones or the status of information are categorized into four types namely rise (R) (18%), fall (F) (16%), rise-fall (RF) (48%), and fallrise (FR) (18%). When the intonation patterns are already known, interpersonal meaning can be analyzed. Key words: Tonality, Tonicity, Tone, Interpersonal Meaning.
