THE LANGUAGE ATTITUDE OF WEST JAVA PROVINCE PUBLIC OFFICIALS

nfn Kartika

Abstract


UNDANG-UNDANG menuntut agar para pejabat publik menggunakan bahasa
Indonesia secara penuh dalam pidato-pidato mereka. Namun, pada
kenyataannya para pejabat publik itu sering menyelipkan istilah-istilah bahasa
asing dalam pidato mereka. Praktik yang semacam itu menimbulkan kekhawatiran
karena mereka memiliki peran sebagai teladan di masyarakat. Untuk alasan
itulah, penelitian sikap bahasa pejabat publik terhadap bahasa daerah, bahasa
Indonesia, dan bahasa asing ini diperlukan. Secara kuantitatif penelitian ini
merekam tingkat persetujuan responden dalam instrumen berskala Likert empat
(2010). Hasil penelitian menunjukkan bahwa secara umum responden memiliki
sikap bahasa yang positif terhadap bahasa daerah, sikap bahasa yang sangat
positif terhadap bahasa Indonesia, dan sikap bahasa yang negatif terhadap
bahasa asing. Meskipun begitu, responden perempuan memiliki sikap bahasa
yang berbeda daripada sikap bahasa perempuan di negeri barat. Alasan di balik
perbedaan itu adalah perbedaan konteks sosiokultural.

 

Abstract
THE law demands that public officials give their speech fully in Indonesian language.
However, it is common to find ones who switch to foreign language expressions in
theirs. Such practice is somewhat bothering because they play an important part in the
society as role models. For that reason it is necessary to find out the language attitude
of public officials towards native language, Indonesian language, and foreign language.
The quantitative aspect of the instrument solicits the respondents' agreement in a fourpoint
Likert's scale (2010). The result shows that in general the respondents show a
positive language attitude towards native language, a very positive attitude towards
Indonesian language, and a negative language attitude towards foreign language.
However, female respondents' language attitude is different from that of in western
society. The reason is due to a difference in sociocultural context.
