Wijayanto, Agus
Online Submission, Internet Journal Language, Culture and Society v36 p34-47 Feb 2013
This paper investigated refusal strategies conducted by British native speakers of English (NSE) and Javanese learners of English (JLE). The data were elicited through discourse completion tasks (DCT) from 20 NSE and 50 JLE. Refusal strategies in Javanese were elicited from 35 native speakers of Javanese (NJ) to provide a baseline for investigating the extent to which differences between JLE and NSE could be explicated by the influence of Javanese pragmatics. The refusal strategies were an analyzed based on a modified refusal taxonomy proposed by Beebe, Takahashi and Uliss-Weltz (1990). The study found that the refusal strategies of JLE and NJ were more similar than either was to those of NSE. These findings suggest that distinctive JLE usages are due to the use of the Javanese Sopan and Santun strategies.
