This paper is one of the outputs of research on the Performance of Grammatically and Communication Politeness Politicians of Indonesian Women on Social Media. Political figures discussed specifically are only for women members of the legislature (DPRD). For this paper, it is limited to discuss only the performance of the lexicon (choice of words) and sentence structures used by DPRD members (district, city and province levels) throughout West Sumatra when communicating on social media (Facebook, Twitter or Instagram). This research is qualitative in nature. The data source is the social media accounts of women-only members of the West Sumatra legislature. The data was collected by print-screen from Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and converted into picture format (jpg). The print screen results are then copied into the prepared formats. Furthermore, the data were analyzed qualitatively with the content analysis method with semantic, syntactic and pragmatic theory. The results obtained show that the lexicon (diction) and structure (pattern) of sentences used vary. The choice of lexicons consists of lexicons derived from foreign languages and regional languages, in addition to Indonesian lexicons. What is interesting in the selection of this lexicon is the unusual use of words, abbreviations and acronyms. Furthermore, the sentence structure (pattern) used is minor and inversion sentence structure.
