AN ANALYSIS OF IMPLICATURE IN “PEACEFUL WARRIOR” MOVIE SCRIPT

Andini Riani, Sukma Septian Nasution

Abstract


When talking, people often have implied meaning which is actually more significant by content rather than direct meaning in comparison. As a part of linguistic event, implicature is easily found in many occasions. One of them is in a movie dialogue. However, understanding the implied meaning is not everyone‘s skill in and it needs prior knowledge. Therefore, this study aims at (1) finding out the implicature in the Peaceful Warrior movie script and (2) the explanation to the implied meaning used by the actors in the movie. This is a qualitative study by using Yule‘s theory of implicature. The result of this study reveals that there are 20 conversational implicatures found in the movie.
Keywords: implicature; implied meaning; peaceful warrior
