Dina Maryadi Nasution

Abstract


The purpose of this article is to analyze the speech act and intertextuality of short story of Rumah Tua di Ujung Jalan by Daniel Sudibyo. The researcher classified the utterances found in this story into seven aspects of the speech act, namely four assertive utterances, four performative utterances, four verdictive utterances, seven expressive utterances but no directive utterances, commissive utterances, and phatic utterances were found. Based on the analysis in intertextuality, the researcher found that one story related to this story. The title of that short story is Rumah Tua Itu by Siti Aisyah. The researcher analyses from two aspects, those are thematic intertextuality and cultural intertextuality. From the thematic intertextuality, both of these stories are telling about mystery of the house and the cultural intertextuality. Both of the texts are not influenced by cultural like belief, religion, or ethnic. Both of the stories only tell about feeling embittered from some people who walk in front of a big house then, they decided to enter into the house.
