Abstract

It is impossible for us not to use discourse markers in our utterance because without being realized we need them to make our utterance more meaningful. The importance and the function of discourse marker haven't been known widely by students, and for the reason the research entitled 'An Analysis the use of discourse markers in the spontaneous and non-spontaneous utterance's students. The aims of the research are: the first is to analyze the most discourse markers used in spontaneous utterance's students. The second is to analyze the use of discourse marker in non-spontaneous utterance, and the third is to analyze discourse markers used wrongly in spontaneous and non-spontaneous utterance's students. After being analyzed, it could be concluded that both spontaneous and non- spontaneous utterances, discourse marker 'hmm' as 'filler' is mostly used. The other discourse markers used by students are 'yes', 'oh', 'well', 'I see'. Meanwhile the most discourse markers used wrongly by the students in their utterances are 'hmm', 'yeah', 'oh' and 'ah'. The influence of Indonesian language such as: 'he..he..he', 'ya..ya..ya' could also be seen from discourse markers used by the students and it makes the utterance 'clumsy'. Discourse markers used in spontaneous utterance are more various, butat the same time the mistakes made in using them are also more.
