Abstract

Younger generations in Depok City, West Java, generally use Colloquial Jakarta Indonesian in daily activities. In certain condition and situations, especially at school, they also use another variety of Indonesian, the Standard Indonesian. It is important to see how they use each variety in daily life, as reflected in their attitudes. This study examines these adolescents’ language attitudes through a questionnaire as the main instrument. The focus of this study is the Indonesia varieties, Standard Indonesian and Colloquial Jakarta Indonesian. Respondents in this study were students of a junior and a senior high school (N=604). The questionnaires were distributed at schools. Three items were examined: pride, importance of the variety, and intention to improve the variety. Data were analyzed quantitatively. The result shows that all respondents tended to have positive attitudes towards both varieties. Nevertheless, results from statistical analysis show several findings. In terms of pride, importance, and respondents’ intention for improvement, Standard Indonesian always had higher scores than those of Colloquial Jakarta Indonesian. This study also indicates that both varieties of Indonesian have their own status and function in school setting.
