Abstract

Reflecting on the movies produced by the Tegal city government, entitled Dalim D’Tegal Maritim (2013), NIK (2014), Meniti Senja (2015) and Senyum Niki (2016), the actors often used swearing speech in their dialogues. Those movies told about social lives and the facts in Tegal, such as the maritime which forms the identity of Tegal, the socialization of electronic ID card creating, the socialization of a health service post for the elderly and the socialization of a complaint service center for household problems.
