Abstract

Aam Amaliah. 14121330381. Exploring Metatextual Devices in EFL Learners‟ Undergraduate Thesis. This study was primarily intended to explore metatextual devices in EFL learners undergraduate thesis. The analysis was centered around metadiscourse taxonomy by Hyland (2005), cooperative principle (Maxim) by Grice, and cooperative principle based model of metadiscourse (metatext) devices by Abdi R (2010). This study explored kinds of metatextual devices in EFL learners‘ undergraduate thesis. The term metadiscourse (metatext) are the ways we articulate and construct interactions, stressing the fact that, as we speak or write, we negotiate with others, making decisions about the kind of effects we are having on our listeners or readers (Hyland, 2012: 126). This study aims to (1) to find out metatextual devices commonly found in EFL learner‘s undergraduate thesis, (2) to find out how EFL learners‘ of IAIN Syekh Nurjati use common metatextual device in the thesis. There relate to the two research question of this study. The research is designed as qualitative research. The data is taken from undergraduate thesis belonging alumni of English language department in 2015. The technique of collecting data is documentation. Then, analyzed with content analysis based on Hyland‘s model investigate the devices that commonly used and how the used of common metatextual devices in the text. The data taken from the clever students, because product from the clever students is reliable and the data more valid. The thesis that analyzed by researcher are one sampling from alumni in 2015. That is not all part of thesis which analyzed, it just introduction chapter because this part of thesis have a key knowledge or information about what is going on in the next chapter related to the purposes of the study.
