Abstract
However Insha’Allah is a compulsory marker in Muslims’ talks to make future plans and promises, Muslims, in recent days, have different perspectives on when, where, how, and to whom they use Insha’Allah. The present study was aimed to explore the illocutionary acts of the conditional pragmatic marker (CPM) Insha’Allah in teachers’ talks. The study uses a descriptive qualitative method to describe the research data; teachers’ talks on social media. The results showed that the CPM Insha’Allah in teachers’ talk has different illocutionary forces: commissives, assertive, directive, and expressive. CPM is a multi-purpose expression in different contexts of teachers’ talks and the possibility of the illocutionary force is varying according to the speakers’ faith background and the understanding of the expression itself. As the speech act with which the CPM is most frequently associated is that of promising: the effect or the perlocutionary act of Insha’Allah is depend on the close relationship between the interlocutor and the listener, the context of utterance, and when referring to an event which will undoubtedly occur in the future. The misuse of the CPM Insha’Allah between the interlocutor and listener Insha’Allah leads to face-threatening act; e.g. fail to promise.
