- This research is a translation study trying to explore how assertive speech acts could be used for revealing impoliteness. In many situation impoliteness as a strategy of speech act aims at disharmony interactions. The disharmony was indicated by their utterances used in interaction. The goals could be reached by using types of speech acts to confirm its impoliteness. Assertive speech acts found in this research were proved be able to use as a strategy to reveal impoliteness. The data is qualitative conveyed by some utterances revealing impoliteness and explored as descriptive method. Content analysis is used in analysing the data by purposive sampling to catch the research goal. The impoliteness theory proposed by Culpeper is used to determine impoliteness strategy. There are 5 strategies, i.e. bald on record impoliteness, positive impoliteness, negative impoliteness, off-record impoliteness and withhold politeness. Otherwise, in assessing the translation quality refers to Nababan et.als assessment model including accuracy, acceptability and readability aspects. The results show that assertive speech acts could be used as strategy revealing impoliteness with high degree of translation quality. This research hopefully may contribute in discussion of impoliteness next time.
