Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to identify and describe the linguistic selection in reproducing the ideology in a folktale. Folktales as literatures for children carry didactic ideologies [1] However, the ideologies tend to be transparent by selectively employing linguistic items. Folktales also consequently possess the tendency to be reproduced. To reveal the transparent ideologies is one of the aims of Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA), particularly in revealing the reasons triggering particular conducts [2]. The object of the study is a folktale from South Kalimantan, Indonesia entitled Ampak dan Musang yang Cerdik [3]. The language in the folktale is observed by linguistic toolkits namely the language of evaluation [4] and transitivity analysis from Systemic Functional Grammar [5]. The participants of the study are the students taking Composition II class in English Letters Department, Sanata Dharma University. The students are expected to be able to retell the folktales by their own styles since they learn various styles in composing English texts. Operationally, in this study the participants have to retell the folktale. Later on, the language of the reproduction is observed and compared to the language of the source text. The expected result is that the linguistic selections in the reproduction tend likely to be similar to the linguistic selections in the source text. However, there might be some differences due to the linguistic repertoire of the participants. Hopefully, this paper might be convenient serving as a case of CDA.
