- The present forensic-pragmatic study was conducted to explore the types of presupposition in Twitter replies. This descriptive qualitative study focuses on examining the presupposition in the Twitter reply columns to reveal any cyberbullying-related speech. The data were analyzed based on Yule’s types of presupposition and Willard’s types of cyberbullying. The linguistic data were obtained through screenshots and text transcription of Twitter in the non-formal context. The results show that 1) the utterances of the speakers suspected of cyberbullying through the conversation contain the lexical, structural, factive, existential, counterfactual, and non-factive presuppositions, as classified by Yule; 2) the classifying utterances of speakers suspected of cyberbullying through the conversation contain the harassment, flaming, and denigration, as classified by Willard, 3) and the analysis of presupposition, in the forensic linguistics viewpoint, have a tendency to violate the Law of the Republic of Indonesia concerning Electronic Information and Transactions, article 27 paragraph 3 Jo45c about affronts and defamation.
