Abstract

Language is very important in our life. It has an important role to interact in society. Everyone use language as a tool to express feeling, idea, and to communicate each other. When we talk about language, we cannot separate it from sociolinguistics. It is because language and social interaction is the basic element in sociolinguistics. In sociolinguistics, we should keep in mind that there is a variation of language. This is a different way to utter statement based on the situation. The different situation can influence the style of speakers. So language style is one of types of language variation. One of language style is casual language style. This research is focused on studying the casual language style in television music program. MTV music program is one of TV programs that use casual language style. It will give and develop the knowledge about Sociolinguistics subject. There are two problems in this research. They are the kinds of language styles and the characteristic of casual language style used by video jockey of MTV Music Program. The aims of the research are to describe the language style used by the VJ and the characteristics of the casual language itself. This research employs a descriptive qualitative research. In analyzing this research “The MTV Show” program is the object of the study. This research uses observation and document analysis as research instrument. The data were collected from the natural conversation or utterance in “The MTV Show” program. From the result of this research, two points are shown. First, there is only one language style used in this program, that is casual language style. Second, the characteristics of casual language style are also found, those are slang, ellipsis, and colloquialism. The VJ uses the casual language style spontaneously in order to entertain the viewers. In this case, the VJs of MTV music program “The MTV Show” used the characteristics of casual language style differently in every episode. Moreover, this program is informal program that is live broadcasted and most of the viewers are teenagers. Thus, it is very common for the informal program to use the informal program speech too.
