Abstract

Nowadays, e-mail is kind of cyber media used widely in various fields including academics. The committees of Konferensi Linguistik Universitas Airlangga (KLUA) 2018 use e-mail for sending and receiving messages from the speakers. This article discusses the politeness strategy in e-mails that speakers sent to the committees. The method of attentive observation and comprehensive reading are applied to identify the politeness strategy in approximately 110 e-mails while data analysis uses the theory and politeness strategy of Brown and Levinson (1987) referring to Mariric’s analysis model (2000). The result shows that the speakers use two kinds of politeness strategies: positive and negative. However, in the frequency of use, more speakers tend to use the negative one, indicating formality and deference for the committees. Related to the parameters for weighing politeness, in this term, variable power (P) of the committees influences the selection of politeness strategy used by the presenters of KLUA 2018.
