Abstract

Language politeness is categorized into two levels different. The first level refers to ethics or principles of behavioural appropriateness in society. On the other hand, the second level refers to the use of language to maintain interpersonal relationships. This study aims to describe the gender representation and politeness of language in the speech events of high school and vocational students in Samarinda City. The method used in this research is descriptive qualitative. Data collection techniques used through observation, recording, and card record. Determination of compliance and deviation from the principle of language politeness is based on indicators of language courtesy derived from Leech’s theory. Data analysis techniques in this study were transcription of data from recordings; identifying, classifying, and clarifying data; copy to data card; analyzing data cards; and draw conclusions. The results showed that female students obeyed the principle of politeness in language for female teachers than male teachers and several times made deviations for male teachers than female teachers. Whereas male students obey the principle of politeness for female teachers rather than male teachers and several times commit irregularities in male teachers than female teachers. Compliance with the principle of politeness in female students is found in (1) maxim of acceptance (2) maxim of humility (3) maxim of agreement (4) and maxim of sympathy. Compliance with the principle of politeness in male students is found in (1) the maxim of wisdom, (2) the maxim of humility, (3) the maxim of sympathy.
