Abstract

The application of Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL) is actually almost unlimited. However, for students, the broad scope of SFL application seems blurry. This study aims to look for the trend of students’ analysis employing SFL on different media. Using a qualitative method, this research focuses on comparing the outcome of students’ analysis in applying SFL on both mass media and social media. The findings showed that the students who applied SFL on the social media had more various discussions than those who applied it on the mass media. The varying discussions and analysis written by students applying SFL on the social media (further called social-media students) differed from students applying SFL on the mass media (further called mass-media students), related to some points. First, social-media students explored more language phenomena than did mass-media students using SFL on the mass media. Second, socialmedia students employed majority of the approaches of SFL in exploring language phenomena occurred on the social media, while mass-media students only used at least two approaches of SFL in exploring the phenomena occurring on the mass media.

 

Penerapan Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL) sebenarnya hampir tidak terbatas. Namun, bagi mahasiswa, cakupan penerapan SFL yang luas nampak kabur. Penelitian ini bertujuan untuk menemukan trend analisis mahasiswa yang menggunakan SFL dalam berbagai media. Dengan menggunakan metode kualitatif, penelitian ini difokuskan untuk membandingkan hasil penelitian mahasiswa pada media massa dan media sosial menggunakan pendekatan SFL. Hasil penelitian menunjukkan bahwa mahasiswa yang mengaplikasikan pendekatan SFL pada media sosial memiliki lebih banyak pembahasan dibanding mahasiswa yang mengaplikasikan SFL pada media massa. Beragamnya pembahasan yang ditulis oleh mahasiswa yang menerapkan SFL pada media sosial berbeda dari mahasiswa yang menerapkan SFL pada media massa, terkait dengan beberapa poin: pertama, mahasiswa yang menganalisis media sosial mengeksplorasi lebih banyak fenomena kebahasaan dibandingkan mahasiswa yang menganalisis media massa; dan kedua, mahasiswa yang menganalisis media sosial menggunakan sebagian besar pendekatan SFL dalam mengeksplorasi fenomena kebahasaan yang terdapat pada media sosial, sementara mahasiswa yang menganalisis media massa hanya menggunakan setidaknya dua pendekatan dalam mengeksplorasi fenomena yang terjadi pada media massa.
