                Abstract

                The title of the thesis is “The Flouting of Conversational Maxims in Short Messages”. The research attempts to describe the flouting of maxims used by participants (senders and receivers) in short messages or texting. It is chosen because nowadays most people can do communication with others using short messages that are sent via a provider. This study uses Grice’s theory of cooperative principle is used especially the flouting of maxims (maxim of quantity, maxim of quality, maxim of relevance, and maxim of manner) and also the theory of transactional analysis. All kinds of those flouting that exist in short messages are analyzed, which are delivered by the participants (senders and receivers). This research uses qualitative descriptive. The utterances produced by the participants, the senders and the receivers, when they were conversing with each others in term of short messages or texting (SMS) were analyzed and described. The data of the research were written data, collected from the utterances, which contain flouting performed by the senders and the receivers in the short messages or texting (SMS). The result of the research shows that conversational maxim are mostly flouted by the participants (sender and receiver) in the short massages is maxim of quantity. It is flouted by adding more information. In maxim of quality, all of the participants flout it by saying what they believed false. In maxim of relevance, the participants flouted it by saying irrelevant responses. In maxim of manner, moreover, the participants flouted it by saying convoluted words which are extremely long-winded. The reason why they flouted the maxim of quantity is that they wanted to clarify the information that they gave to other people. They flouted the maxim of quality because they wanted to create humor to create intimate atmosphere of conversation. By flouting the maxim of relevance, they wanted other people to imagine what they did not say or they want to other people conclude what they had said. Flouting the maxim of manner, they wanted to refuse other people’s request by saying convoluted words which are extremely long-winded. Keywords: Conversation of Maxim, Flouting of Maxim, Short Message Service (SMS)
