- Types of Speech, Speech Functions, Internal Elements, External Elements, Basic Functions
The meaning of a speech is not always identical with the structure of the speech form and it cannot only be traced based on types also its constituent of internal elements. It is because the meaning of speech has a correlation between speech and the actions that the speaker is doing. The external element of speech has a significant role in forming the function and meaning of speech. It is same as the results of the research on the characters’ utterances in the Lost in Thailand 《人 再 囧 途 之 囧》detective humor movie, it found the types of speech which the function is not compatible with the basic function of the speech type. The results of the research show that there are types of expressive speech, assertive speech, directive speech, commissive speech, and declarative speech. Furthermore, each type of speech is described according to its functions include; 1) deliberately to discourage speech partners; 2) criticize directly using harsh words; 3) used as an expression of emotional feelings; 4) used as a protection against opinion, and 5) to accuse the speech partner on purpose. The shifting of meanings and functions from the basic meanings and functions of each type of speech is more due to the external elements of the speech including the relevance and suitability of the context of the place or space, following the purpose of illocutionary acts, and the relationship between speech partners.
