Abstract

A language style is a way for a person to express his thoughts through language media that is conveyed specifically to show the soul and personality of the author (language users). Cynicism and euphemism are forms of figurative language in discourse. Discourse is concluded to be a structure formed from the semantic relationship between language units that are coherent and bound by context. Murals are an effective medium to convey a message because the community uses murals to channel aspirations. This research was conducted using the descriptive analysis method using the Pragmatic Matching technique. This study aims to determine the meaning of language style conveyed through mural writing in electronic media, which is currently a trend for conveying messages. Making murals is a medium in education if it contains educational values and moral messages requirements [1]. The research results in this article include a discussion of cynicism and euphemism in various fields of life such as economics, politics, society, education, and health. In the cynic language style, many words are expressive figurative to display their meaning directly. Meanwhile, euphemistic language style uses more flippant or more subtle word choices to convey speech so that the meaning looks vague.
