Abstract

People cannot live in this world without depending on others. They need to communicate and interact with others by using language, because they must be cooperating in order to survive. It means that language has a great function in human life. Languages are able to express people needs, thought, feeling, emotion, pleasure and so on. Moreover, the function of language is used to maintain and build the social interaction in their daily activities. People have different ways to speak, interact, share the information, or express their idea. It can be influenced by social factors (social class and sex, and the social stratification of language). The way they use language effectively in communication whether in written or oral language is called language style. Language style can be found in choices of the word and grammar which are used in communication. There are five kinds of language styles. They are intimate, casual, consultative, formal and frozen style. This study is aimed to find out what the kinds of language style and the most dominant language style used by Mia Thermopolis as the main character in Meg Cabot’s film “The Princess Diaries”. This study emphasizes on the language styles, particularly in spoken forms which are used in the script of “The Princess Diaries” film. This study used descriptive qualitative design because the researcher wants to get an obvious description of the words and the utterances which were used by Mia Thermopolis. Therefore, the data were in the form of words and utterances, not inthe form of number. In addition, this study used objective approach. It was applied in analyzing “The Princess Diaries” film because the researcher studies about film itself without any studies about the author’s life or background.
