Abstract

TIKA DWI PURNAMI: This research deals with analyzing the intonation patterns (tonality, tonicity, and tone) and the interpersonal meaning used by students as EFL learners. In the area of suprasegmental aspect, it is possible to teach intonation to the students. However, study intonation in class considered a something difficult to teach, the teacher chooses to focus on another aspects than intonation especially in speaking class. In conducting this research, the researcher had two objectives to achieve. First, this study tried to analyze the intonation pattern of students’ storytelling by analyzing tonality or unit of information, tonicity or focus of information, and tone or status of information. Second, it also tried to find out the interpersonal meaning constructed by the students’ storytelling. This research takes a qualitative method in analyzing data where the data is taken from students’ recording as a main data source to be analyzed in this research. 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 and markedness of tonality (unmarked and marked). Then, the researcher analyzed the tonicity system that consists of marked and unmarked tonicity. Further, the researcher analyzed the tone system based on Speech Analyzer system that will be connected to the interpersonal meaning. 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 50 clauses that found in the text. Those clauses divided into two kinds, independent and dependent clause. In this research, the researcher found 23 clauses or 46% of independent clause and 27 clauses or 54%. There are 177 tone units from three respondents. Unmarked or neutral tonality is the domination with 82% percentage and there are 18% marked tonality. Then, in tonicity, respondents put 76% neutral tonicity and 24% marked tonicity. The common patterns of tones or the status of information are categorized into four types namely rise (R) (27%), fall (F) (13%), rise-fall (RF) (48%), fall-rise (FR) (12%). Then, the error intonation is analyzed from the intonation pattern. The different uses of rise tone, fall tone, rise-fall tone, and fall-rise tone can convey different meaning. Key words: Tonality, Tonicity, Tone
