Abstract

A conversation made by two people is known as dialogue. It is structured by means of adjacency pairs that may be analyzed under the umbrella of pragmatics (Yule, 2006). This study was aimed at: (1) identifying the structure of adjacency pairs in the dialogue between President Joko Widodo and Najwa Shihab and (2) identifying the implicatures of adjacency pairs in the dialogue. It was a qualitative type of research applying a pragmatic approach. The data were obtained from the transcript of the dialogue between Najwa Shihab and President Joko Widodo in the Mata Najwa episode of "Di Balik Dinding Istana" (Beyond the Palace Walls) broadcasted by Metro-TV. The structures of the adjacency pairs found in the dialogue are 18 structures, namely (1) question-answer, (2) question-refusal, (3) question-question, (4) question-divert, (5) question-reason, (6) question-affirmation, (7) question-nonverbal doing with reason, (8) question-agreement, (9) question-conclusion, (10) question-wish, (11) confirm-refusal, (12) confirm-nonverbal doing with interpretation, (13) confirms-nonverbal doing, (14) confirms-agreement, (15) thanks-acceptance, (16) nonverbal doing-explain, (17) thanks-nonverbal doing, and (18) acknowledgment-acceptance.
