Abstract

The research entitled “Commissive Utterances in Kung Fu Panda 2 Movie and Their Functions” aimed to find out and classify the types of commissive speech acts used by the characters in Kung Fu Panda 2 Movie. The study explained the functions of each type of commissive speech act based on the contexts as well. The method applied was the descriptive qualitative method. The data of this research were in the form of words, phrases, clauses, and sentences that contain commissive speech acts. The technique of collecting data was conducted by identifying the utterances of the speakers in the dialogue in the Kung Fu Panda 2 movie, transcribing the dialogue for textual analysis, classifying types of commissive speech act, and describing the function of each type of directive speech act. Hereafter, the technique of data analysis was based on Kreidler's (1998) classification of commissive speech acts. The next step was explaining the functions of each type of commissive speech acts based on the pragmatic contexts. The research found seven types of commissive speech acts used by the characters in the movie of Kung Fu Panda 2, such as promises, pledges, agrees, refuses, volunteers, offers, and threats. Promise functioned to make the speaker commit to hearer-on future action. The pledge functioned to make the speaker commit to future action in public. Agreement functioned to respond to the directive. Refusal functioned to refuse to commit oneself to some future action. The volunteer act functioned as a self-motivated act. Offer functioned to offer something/goods. Threat functioned to intimidate the listener in certain situations. The most dominant type of commissive speech act used by the characters was the commissive speech act agree. It occurred because there was a difference in the social status between the characters. The characters who performed agreement have a lower social status or authority, whereas the characters who give the direction have a higher social status. The least type of commissive speech act used by the characters was the commissive speech act pledge. The pledge was uttered when the characters have a similar social status. A similar social status was seen between leader and leader, employee and employee, and peer acquaintances.
