- Intensity is the highest distance between the neutral lines and the curve of a wave. This magnitude is often called amplitude. A sound or speech that has a high intensity or large-amplitude, then the sound or speech utterance will be increasingly loud (Rogers, 2013). In certain societies, especially Javanese, the intensity is a possible reference to someone's politeness in speaking. This study aims to explore whether the intensity of spoken utterances in Javanese society is related to politeness. This study focuses on the intensity of interrogative sentences in various sentence patterns in Javanese society based on gender variables. Experimental Phonetics was used as an approach in this study. The data of utterances are obtained through the technique of recording the data object. Based on the collected data, the data segmentation applied aims to obtain the intensity number (referring to the desi Bell scale = dB). The results for segmentation numbers were then statistically processed; differences or equations were sought and described, aimed at knowing whether there was a relationship between intensity and politeness in Javanese language utterances, considering high intensity speech is generally categorized as less polite utterances.
