Euphemism is a more subtle expression used to replace expressions that are felt harmful and considered taboo. This study aims to describe the forms and the implications of euphemism in poster learning. This study used the descriptive qualitative method. The data that had been obtained was described in the form of words. The data used in this study was utterances in the news headline by the Instagram account of @tempodotco. The data in the study were collected using documentation, listening, and note-taking techniques. The data were analyzed using Hubung Banding Menyamakan (HBS) technique with the intralingual equivalent method. This method and technique were carried out to describe lingual elements by connecting and then comparing the same linguistic data, in the form of euphemisms, to find similarities in the data, such as this -things related to the meaning, the context of the speech, and others. Based on the research, it can be concluded that 15 euphemistic data were found on the @tempodotco news poster during September and October 2021. The forms of euphemism found were divided into four parts with the following distribution: 5 in the use of abbreviations (use of initials, use of acronyms, and standardized forms), 2 in the use of loanwords, 2 in the use of foreign terms, and 6 in the use of metaphors. In addition, other forms of euphemism can be used as teaching materials for studying presentation patterns and language and messages in posters for junior high school students in the context of moral formation through smoothing words and sentences in euphemisms.
