Nowadays, the swearing becomes more popular day by day. As a result, there are many educated people also use it to express their feelings when they are anger, upset, stress, and hurt. It is the same of what Todd Phillips tells in his movie “The Hangover”. The aim of this research is to describe swearing, types of swearing and to know the most dominant swearing expressed by Phil Wenneck as a school teacher in “The Hangover” movie directed by Todd Phillips. In conducting this research, the researcher used a descriptive qualitative research design to analyzed the data. All the data in this research were taken from the conversation among the characters, especially by Phil Wenneck (a school teacher) and his friends in “The Hangover” movie which were considered as swearing. Since this research was a qualitative research, the main instrument of this research was the researcher herself. For analyzing the data the researcher used some steps, firstly, the researcher tabulated all swearing expressed by Phil Wenneck in “The Hangover” movie directed by Todd Phillips. Secondly, she categorized the types of swearing expressed by Phil Wenneck in “The Hangover” movie. Lastly, she decided the most dominant of swearing expressed by Phil Wenneck in that movie. The result of this study showed that Phil Wenneck in “The Hangover” movie directed by Todd Phillips used ninety five swearings for showing up his awe, anger, upset, stress, and hurt such as fucked up, holy shit, Jesus, goddamn, shit!, and so on. Secondly, Phil Wenneck used some types of swearing in “The Hangover” movie based on Steven Pinker`s theory, such as: descriptive swearing, idiomatic swearing, abusive swearing, emphatic swearing, and cathartic swearing. Thirdly, Phil Wenneck used “shit” swearing as the most dominant swearing in “The Hangover” movie. Finally, it was proved that swearing was also spoken by people who have high and well education. We cannot judge someone who uses obscene words to swear other people as people who are impolite, do not have high and well education. In relation with that theory, it is clear that someone used swearing for different reason and purposes.
