  • Linguistic problems of translating Indonesian popular lyrics of cover
           songs into English

    • Authors: Tira Nur Fitria
      Pages: 1 - 14
      Abstract: Translation results can be influenced by linguistic aspects. The objective of this study is to investigate several kinds of linguistic problems in the translation of Indonesian popular lyrics’ cover-songs from Indonesian into English. This study applies descriptive qualitative research. This research uses the document to collect data. The document used is cover songs from several popular singers and bands such as Andmesh Kamaleng, Anneth, Budi Doremi, Nineball, and Christian Bautista. There are seven popular lyrics’ cover songs that have been analyzed. The result analysis shows that translation songs activities cannot be separated from linguistic problems as in morphological, syntactical, phonological, and semantic. Morphologically, the problem is in the difference of the grammatical system related to singular and plural nouns. In phonological, the problem is in the differences between Indonesian and English syllables. As a result, the differences cause a different pronunciation and produce a different number of syllables. Syntactically, the problem is in constructing sentence elements. In a sentence, both in Indonesian and English at least will need a subject and a predicate orderly. Semantically, the problem is related to the meaning contained in a word or sentence, but equivalence may occur in translating to achieve an adequate degree of equivalence. When translating a song, a translator must pay close attention to the many components that contribute to the creation of a full product song. These components include song lyrics or text, as well as musical elements like melody and rhythm. In its formulation, the song lyric is a language that is not isolated from the musical principles such as the song's rhythm, melody, and harmony. In song translation, the sense and facts of the source texts are often changed. Therefore, the translator is faced with a choice of whether or not to translate such a lyric.

  • Are you a die-hard K-pop fan' Examining English Korean code mixing
           uttered by an American native speaker youtuber

    • Authors: Khadijah Khadijah, Emy Sudarwati
      Pages: 15 - 33
      Abstract: This study analyzes the types and reasons for code-mixing used by the speaker with a concern for the interlocutors, who are a native speaker and a non-native speaker. The significance of comparing the speaker's code-mixing aims to know if changes in the interlocutors affect the types and reasons for code-mixing adopted. This analysis applied the qualitative descriptive method to analyze data taken from two YouTube videos of an American native speaker namely Edward Avila entitled Chopping all my friend’s hair off and giving him makeover with Korean native speaker as the interlocutor and catching up with Sorn + A soft glam lewk with Korean non-native speaker as the interlocutor. For Korean native speaker interlocutor, the most frequently used code-mixing type is alternation, while for Korean non-native speaker interlocutor is insertion. However, the data identified three specific reasons for code-mixing with Korean native speaker interlocutor, notably clarification of the speech content, interjection, and quotation of someone else. Meanwhile, there are two specific causes for code-mixing revealed in the data of Korean non-native speaker interlocutor, namely discussion of a specific topic and repetition used for clarification. The varied types of interlocutors had an impact on the forms of code-mixing and the reasons for code-mixing in the dialogue

  • Overcoming the problem of cultural untranslatability in Burnett’s the
           secret garden from English into Indonesian

    • Authors: Nadia Khumairo Ma'shumah, Sajarwa Sajarwa
      Pages: 34 - 50
      Abstract: This study aimed at investigating the untranslatable cultural terms found in the novel from English into Indonesian since not all cultural terms in Source Text can be fully transferred into Target Text as well as the translator’s decision to overcome the problem of untranslatability since English and Indonesian have very different cultural concepts. This study was a data-driven study by using The Secret Garden’s novel written by Burnett (1911/2019) as the Source Text (ST) and its Indonesian translation by Kusumawardani (2020) (under the same title) as the Target Text (TT). The data were analyzed by using descriptive-mix-comparative methods that combined the theory of Newmark’s (1988) cultural terms categorization and Newmark’s (1988) translation procedures. As a result, to overcome the problem of cultural untranslatability, the translator frequently employs transference, naturalization, and notes procedures. From in-depth analysis, transference by retaining the SL’s cultures in the TL is used to avoid mistranslation because the lacks a formally corresponding feature. Naturalization is used by adapting the SL cultural-specific words to the TL's normal pronunciation and morphology because there are designation similarities in both the SL and the TL. Meanwhile, notes in the form of in-text annotations and footnotes were used to strengthen the translator's role by highlighting her in the translation results. Nevertheless, notes are commonly used in conjunction with naturalization to reduce strangeness, as leaving too many untranslatable cultural references weakens the translation result.

           teachers in east Kalimantan

    • Authors: Abdul Halim, Yih-Sheue Lin, Mustofa Mustofa, Khusnul Khatimah
      Pages: 51 - 62
      Abstract: The purpose of the study was to explore how continuous professional development is conducted, who conducts it, and the factors that influence it. According to the laws of the Republic of Indonesia, teaching is a professional job that requires certain educational and training qualifications so that teachers can become professional personnel. By seeing the importance of professionalism in this work and in order to see the picture of the CPD of teachers in East Kalimantan, this research is important to carry out. This research uses a qualitative case study method. The subjects of this study were teachers (n=10) from ten schools in Samarinda, Kutai Kartanegara, and Balikpapan. Data were collected using a CPD questionnaire and interviews. The data obtained were analysed and presented with descriptions and tables or charts. The data indicated that most of the teachers participated in the study are aware of the components of professional teacher indicated from the government laws. The study also reveals how the CPD is conducted by different stakeholders. Some suggestions are proposed based on the results of the study.

  • The implementation of TPS (think pair share) cooperative learning model
           aided by Google hangouts in literary expression course

    • Authors: Fina Hiasa, Supadi Supadi, Nafri Yanti
      Pages: 63 - 75
      Abstract: This study aims to determine how the application of the TPS (Think-Pair-Share) type of cooperative learning model assisted by Google Hangout can improve the quality of learning in seventh semester students of the Indonesian Language Education Study Program, FKIP UNIB, in the Literary Expression course. The data analysis technique used in this study was a descriptive method that produced an overview of the extent to which the quality of learning has improved by using the TPS (Think-Pair-Share) type of cooperative learning model assisted by Google Hangouts for students who were the research samples. This classroom action research was carried out in two cycles, and each cycle used the main digital learning room, namely the Google Hangout application. Data collection techniques were carried out through non-test techniques at the beginning and end of cycles I and II using questionnaires and observation sheets. In the first cycle, the results obtained had not reached the expected target. The target required was reached in the second cycle. The learning outcomes of the second cycle of students obtained an A score of 13 people (36%), a B value of 18 people (50%), a C value of 5 people (14%), and a D value of 0 people (0%). These results indicate that the target achievement of 30% had been successfully achieved by applying the TPS learning model assisted by the Google Hangouts.

  • Males and females’ complimenting behaviour on the celebrities’
           Instagram comments

    • Authors: Muthiara Chairani, Subiyantoro Subiyantoro
      Pages: 76 - 103
      Abstract: A compliment is a sincerely positive comment, remark, utterance, or expression about the speaker’s intention to have a good relationship with others by delivering positive or good values toward someone else. This research is purposed to analyze complimenting behavior by males and females found on celebrities’ Instagram comments. This research employed descriptive qualitative research through a documentaries method. 250 comments from 10 most-followed celebrities’ (five males and five females) comment columns were used to identify the complimenting behavior in the form of words, phrases, or clauses containing compliments. This revealed that the differences between males and females in complimenting behavior showed who complimented, to whom they complimented, the compliment types, and the compliment forms. Females complimented more than males did. Besides, complimenting celebrities is commonly directed at the same sex rather than across sex. However, both males and females were more likely to use direct compliments and less indirect compliments. Compliments by both males and females also showed that direct compliment form 8 (ADJ NP!) is dominantly used. The dominance of form 8 occurrence indicated that shorter form of compliment seemed suitable and reasonable for a virtual interaction like Instagram. From this research analysis, it can be concluded that some different contexts of communication require other compliment forms. Therefore, adding a sub-category and additional category from the original compliment forms should be considered.

  • Teachers' perceptions of challenges in online learning: Voices from
           secondary EFL teachers

    • Authors: Dwi Bayu Saputra, Honesty Yonanda Ayudhia, Reci Muswari
      Pages: 104 - 119
      Abstract: The abrupt change from a traditional classroom to online learning must have produced some issues, and many scholars were drawn in to investigate the reported challenges during online learning. There is, however, a paucity of research on secondary EFL teachers' perceptions of online learning challenges, notably in four major areas: technology use, instruction, assessment, and students. Therefore, the purpose of this descriptive quantitative study is to examine secondary EFL teachers' perspectives of the challenges they encounter in dealing with the aforementioned issues.  The participants included 73 upper and lower secondary English as a foreign language (EFL) teacher. A closed-item questionnaire was deployed, with a total of 38 items addressing issues related to online learning challenges. The findings reveal that secondary EFL teachers in Indonesia reported medium-level challenges in teaching EFL online in terms of technology use, instruction, assessment, and students, whilst challenges in assessing students in online learning were identified as the highest. The results contribute to the advancement of English language education by providing literature on the development of EFL teachers.

  • The transition of online into limited English learning-teaching in the
           rural area context

    • Authors: Amira Wahyu Anditasari, Siti Kholija Sitompul
      Pages: 120 - 135
      Abstract: The Covid-19 pandemic has started to decrease, thus many schools in Indonesia have switched their learning activity from online to limited offline learning teaching. This new learning policy from the government might lead to the betterment or instead create new learning issues. Reflected from the online learning implementation, rural students suffer more compared to urban students. Therefore, this study aimed at exploring rural students’ perceptions towards the transition of online into offline limited learning teaching. A survey study was carried out in the state junior high school 3 Purbatua, North Sumatra, involving 49 students from level 7 to 9 grades. The students were provided with a close-ended questionnaire investigating their perceptions in terms of course content coverage, learning effectiveness, and learning interaction. This turned out that most students were less satisfied with the conductivity of limited offline teaching. Students’ satisfaction in the limited offline teaching needs to be considered to have an effective teaching and learning atmosphere. This might be beneficial both to the government and teachers as a reflection to maintain a more appropriate limited offline teaching. The learning and teaching barriers in turn might serve as a reflection for teachers to design more effective teaching activities.

    • Authors: Gumono Gumono
      Pages: 136 - 148
      Abstract: The purpose of this study was to identify and describe the use of operational verbs based on Anderson’s taxonomic cognitive domain on test items of Indonesian language exams in the public vocational high school in Bengkulu, Indonesia. This is qualitative in nature employing descriptive method as the research design.

  • Video or audio listening tests for English language teaching context:
           which is more effective for classroom use'

    • Authors: Clara Herlina Karjo, Menik Winiharti, Safnil Arsyad
      Pages: 149 - 166
      Abstract: Multimodal inputs (both auditory and visual) in the forms of films and videos have long been used in teaching EFL listening comprehension. Previous studies have shown that listening while watching videos can significantly aid students’ comprehension. However, videos were rarely used as testing materials since they contained more than aural input so they did not ‘really’ test listening. This study explored the extent to which multimodal testing materials can be used in testing listening comprehension for EFL students and how the results would differ from that of mono modality testing materials. The participants were 100 students of the English Department, Bina Nusantara University (henceforth Binus) University Jakarta. The researchers gave them two kinds of tests: the video listening test (VLT) and audio listening test (ALT). The materials were two short videos from YouTube. The first test, ALT was given after the participants listened to the videos twice. On the contrary, VLT was administered after they watched the videos twice. To examine the differences in the effects of VLT or ALT on EFL students’ performance in listening comprehension, the data were analyzed quantitatively. The results indicate that students got better scores for VLT compared to ALT.

  • Local English teachers’ voices from a marginalized lens: Inequality
           practices and identity construction in the workplace

    • Authors: Sahril Nur, Ismail Anas, Reski Pilu, Nurfajriah Basri
      Pages: 167 - 185
      Abstract: This article reports on a narrative case study that showcases the local English teachers’ perceived inequality practices and identity construction in Indonesia’s micro-reality context of a private language school domain. Grounded in the social theory of power, privilege, and positional identities, three synchronous online interviews were conducted to explore the LETs voices about what it means to experience the equality of rights and obligations in the workplace. As a result, the study revealed four inequality issues: (1) dissatisfaction with the payroll system, (2) the representation of gender and race in promotional endorsement, (3) the call for decolonizing pedagogy in ELT materials and resources, and (4) perceived identity as legitimate and qualified English teachers. Regarding the workload capacity and role as professional English teachers, they recognized that they deserve equal treatment as their native counterparts. However, this type of discrimination will further widen the gap between LETs and NESTs dichotomy and impede the construction of language teacher identity. This study suggests exploring dedicated strategies to develop information literacy skills for school principals, parents, teachers, students, and policymakers. This study will also contribute to the growth of critically oriented literature and scholarship on teacher identity and critical anti-racist language teaching pedagogy.

It was carried out by searching, identifying, and selecting the research articles related to the study objective from electronic databases. Then, the data were analyzed by using qualitative data analysis which consists of data reduction, data display, and drawing the conclusion. The results showed that the seven research articles reported the enhancement of EFL learners’ cultural competence in terms of students’ attitude, knowledge, skills and cultural awareness. In addition, 3 research articles reported the enhancement of students’ language skills i.e., speaking, vocabulary, reading, and listening through learning activities done during and after watching and analyzing English movies. Therefore, it is suggested that English teachers pay attention to the culture teaching in ELT. English teachers can select appropriate English movie/film in the classroom as a means to enhance students’ cultural competence and to enhance students’ language skills.

  • Developing an intensive reading material for EFL students: a final product

    • Authors: Pratnyawati Nuridi Suwarso, Muhammad Dzulfiqar Praseno
      Pages: 259 - 275
      Abstract: This research aims at developing the Intensive Reading material for the second-semester English Language Education Program students. It is a Research and Development study that was done by using Reeves’ (2000) Design-Based Research model. Tomlinson’s (1998) definition of learning material is also used as one of the considerations in developing the material since the material needed by the students should contribute to the students’ needs. The needs analysis showed that the intensive reading skills are still considered difficult for some students. Additionally, the content of the product is based on the syllabus and the Outcome Based Education (OBE) curriculum. The researchers develop 11 units of Intensive Reading material based on the previous needs analysis data. It covers the descriptive, narrative, recount, and procedure text materials, as those types of text are supposed to be taught in the Intensive Reading class. Moreover, materials related to the intensive reading skills such as scanning, skimming, previewing, predicting, building a powerful vocabulary, context clues, and understanding topic, main idea, and paragraph are also included in the final product. The Intensive Reading materials were validated by two experts and will be tried out to the second-semester students and three English lecturers in the English Language Education Program of Universitas Brawijaya Malang.

  • Feminist stylistic analysis and LGBTQA+ representation in Lady
           Gaga’s born this way

    • Authors: Rahmadsyah Rangkuti, Siti Hafifah
      Pages: 276 - 290
      Abstract: This study is intended to find out the exact meaning of the lyrics at different levels of language, and phonetic devices, as well as to reveal how these stylistic devices work on Lady Gaga’s Born This Way (LGBTQA+). This study employed qualitative content analysis. The source of the data was the song Born This Way by Lady Gaga and the data were the linguistics aspects of the song, which are the words, phrases, clauses and sentences, as well as the discourse unit of the song. It was found that the song aims to speak to as many perspectives as possible, through different races, sexualities, and gender expressions, through the language uses that are represented in the song. By then, this song has completely succeeded to not only raising up feminist voice, but also, most likely, if there was no song with all the impact and events, understanding about gender and equality would not develop as it is today. The song strongly emphasizes the equality notion by accepting who we are as we are all born this way. The choices of word, phrase, clause and sentence as well as the discourse unit credit about self-liberation, and loving every part of oneself, no matter what race, belief, or sexuality one is on. This also proves that this song is not solely an LGBTQA+ community anthem, instead, it is a song for all kind of self-acceptance.
