Building awareness of a harmonious and peaceful life in a multicultural society requires tolerant attitudes. This tolerance is one of the values that have been upheld since the Enlightenment period in the mid-18th century with the emergence of the conception of humanism, renaissance, and reform, especially in England and France and “aufklarung” in Germany. This value of tolerance is seen as very important, so Enesco issued a Declaration of Tolerance Principles in 1995. Intolerance can arise from various aspects, including the use of language. The use of language that is not tolerant, both in structure and substance, can have an impact on the effectiveness of communication between speech participants. That is, in communication, the choice of language and variety of languages, as well as tolerant speech, becomes a demand based on social, psychological, and cultural rules. Therefore, this article aims to describe forms of tolerant speech in a multicultural society and tolerant speech styles in communication in a multicultural society. The study of tolerant speech in the communication of a multicultural society is carried out with a pragmatic approach through the ethnographic design of communication. The data are in the form of speech segments and their context in a speech event of multicultural community communication. Data analysis was carried out in an eclectic way through the stages of identification and classification, interpretation, pairing, and data meaning. The results of the analysis obtained are in the form of tolerant speech forms based on the pattern of language structure, the form of greeting, expression, use of modalities, and use of references. Meanwhile, the tolerant speech style found in the series of research includes phatic speech style, self-telling, joking, information dissemination, information decomposition, analogizing information, giving reasons, repetition, focusing, comparison, illustrating, detailing, strengthening.
