Abstract
This paper investigates the use of Javanese as a tool of expression for solidarity politeness in the ethnic Chinese community in the Javanese Arek cultural area. The objective is to understand what kind of Javanese language tends to be used as a tool for expressing solidarity politeness and the contexts of use. The data were collected through interviews and analyzed using the theory of Ron Scollon and Suzanne Wong Scollon (2001). The results show that the Javanese language used as a tool of expression for solidarity politeness by the ethnic Chinese community in the Javanese Arek cultural area is the Ngoko level. A strategy of involvement is realized with this level. Interestingly, the contexts in which the ngoko level is used are somewhat different from the ethnic Javanese community. In the ethnic Chinese community, the (-D) factor is more important than (+P), while the opposite is true for the Javanese. The different contexts of use may cause friction in cross-ethnic Javanese-Chinese communication if not properly managed.
