- This paper discusses about the strategy of politeness for FTA (face-threatening act) receiver in facing and responding ‘face-threatening act’ addressed to them. This article is resumed from research result to speech act of KBJ VI participants. It is known that the speech act of KBJ VI participants were various. Some of them expressed FTA performed by presenters, moderators, or audients. FTA is an impropriate utterance to be potentially making the receiver feel ashamed and dislike, therefore it is potentially to raise anger for receiver. This problem formulation is how is the reaction of FTA receiver in facing and responding FTA that shame on them. The method of the research is conducted by recording, writing, classifying, choosing. The data collection is conducted by recording and noting participants’ entire speech act of KBJ VI, particularly the discussion in the seminar. The result of the recording and noting is then classified between discussion that contains FTA and not contains. Then, the discussion is classified into speech act which potentially contains FTA. The classification is then reviewed to the FTA receiver reaction in responding FTA. The result shows that the reaction of FTA receiver in facing and responding FTA are various. Some of them are responding with laughing and joking to admit their fault. Some others are silent without reaction as if careless. Some others express low profile respond. Various reactions are more likely as a strategy of politeness from the FTA receivers in keeping harmony and peace to avoid potential conflict. It is similar to the Javanese proverbs “ngono ya ngono. ning aja ngono” (to behave as what should behave).
