- The study of meaning in context is the core of pragmatics. In fact, the context of the language of any literary work may be felt in the text but not all the time, since understanding literary works may be dependent on cultural contexts that are not found in the text. Hence the paralinguistic and extra linguistic clues of relating meaning to the context have to do with the attempt to get at the intended meaning of an utterance. The purpose of this paper is to analyze types of illocutionary and perlocutionary act found in an anthology of short stories “9 dari Nadira” by Leila S. Chudori. This is the first edition that was published in Jakarta by Kelompok Pustaka Gramedia in 2009. This research used the descriptive qualitative method. The data are taken from subtitle “Mencari Seikat Seruni” and “Nina dan Nadira”. The data would be analyzed based on Searle’s theory about the classifications of the illocutionary act. This study uses a qualitative approach. The type of research used is descriptive research. Data collection is carried out by documentation techniques, while data analysis techniques are carried out with qualitative descriptive and pragmatic analysis. From theoretical and experimental perspectives, there were several studies concerning speech act theory as one of the basic elements for studying pragmatics. Literary texts, novels, and drama have received quite good pragmatic attention, but not much has been paid to short stories. As such, the present study was carried out with the aim of examining four short stories and analyzes them pragmatically. It has come to the findings that the use of speech acts fluctuate both in quantity and type from one writer and from one theme to another. The results showed that the meanings contained in the locus speech act. Based on the results, all of the studies of pragmatics are found in an anthology of short stories 9 dari Nadira which is written by Leila S. Chudori.
