Abstract

There are various ways of using a language including communication, the expression of identity, play, imaginative expression, and emotional release. Language can be expressed through many things, one of which is through songs.Language may be said to work in two broad dimensions namely literal and figurative dimensions.Figurative dimension deals with the suggestive or connotative use of language. Figurative language usually can be found in some literary works such as poetry, song lyrics, script and fiction. It is used to create a special effect or feeling. The importance of studying and analyzing the figurative language are for people to know meaning of the lyric songs because it is quite hard for people to know the meaning of figurative language without analyzing the kind and meaning in it. In this study, the writer presents figurative language by Kodaline in their second album Coming up for air. Furthermore, the writer has two research problems. Those are: what are the kinds of figurative language used in Kodaline’s song lyrics in album Coming up for air and what are the meanings of each kind of figurative language in Kodaline’s song lyrics in album Coming up for air? This research focused on the types of figurative language that is used in Kodaline songs and the figurative meaning in Kodaline’s songs. The writer used figurative language theory by M.H. Abrams (2012) to analyze the types of figurative language and to analyze the figurative meaning. In order to support this study, the writer used qualitative method to analyze each sentence in the song lyrics. The result of this study is the writer found eight types of figurative language in Kodaline’s songs. There are: metaphor, antithesis, personification, simile, synecdoche, symbol, paradox, and hyperbole. The dominant figurative language that is used in this album is metaphor. The least figurative languages that are used are synecdoche and paradox. The author used figurative language to produce image in listeners’ mind to explain ideas, emotion, and images in a more beautiful way than through plain language.
