Corpus Linguistics allowed critical discourse analysts to avoid bias in data selection and enlarge their samples for more representative findings. Critical Discourse Analysis, on the other hand, gave depth to corpus linguistic analysis by contextualizing it. The present study combines the two approaches to analyze the semantic prosody of Islamic keywords common to John Updike's <em>Terrorist</em> published in 2006 and Jonathan Wright’s translation <em>The Televangelist </em>published in 2016. The results of corpus-based analysis show that while the semantic prosody of Islamic keywords is negative in Updike’s novel, it is highly positive in the translated novel. The conclusion is that Van Dijk’s proposition of the polarized representation of ‘us’ versus ‘them’ holds for Updike’s fundamentalist Islamic discourse which negatively represents Islam and Muslims. However, Van Dijk’s proposition holds only partially for Wright's tolerant Islamic discourse which positively represents Islam and Muslims without misrepresenting the other.</p> 2019-09-18T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Ideology behind the war of puputan badung 2019-12-04T03:06:41+00:00 A.

The data analyzed in this paper were taken from Japanese corpus data. The concept of ellipsis was taken from Quirk <em>et al</em>., (1985), Makino &amp; Tsutsui, (1994), and Verhaar (1981). The ellipsis from Quirk et al (1985) was applied the concept of recoverability from the grammatical point of view: (1) textual recoverability, (2) situational recoverability, and (3) structural recoverability. The qualitative and synchronic descriptive method was employed in this study. A qualitatively descriptive method was employed to explain and describe the coordinative sentence, whereas the synchronic approach was used to cover the current language phenomena. The findings show that in the coordinative structure, ellipsis of the function of grammatical subject, ellipsis the function of predicate and ellipsis of the function of object took place. Ellipsis of the function of grammatical in the coordinative structure can be anaphoric or cataphoric. It is called anaphoric because the ellipsis takes place rightward, the controlling constituents are located in the first clauses and the controlled constituents are located in the second clause. It is called cataphoric because the controlling constituents are located in the second clauses and the controlled constituents are located in the first clauses.</p> 2019-11-06T11:04:01+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Deconstruction of the colonial discourse on the erpangir ku lau ritual in karo society 2019-12-05T03:06:59+00:00 Vanesia Amelia Sebayang <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Erpangir ku lau</em>&nbsp;is a ritual of cleansing based on Hindu&nbsp;<em>Pemena</em>&nbsp;teachings. This ritual teaches the Karo people to maintain harmonious relations between humans, the forces of nature, and the Creator. However, in the Dutch colonial era,&nbsp;<em>erpangir lau</em> was stopped because it was part of the worship and the practice of magic. The method used in this article is a descriptive qualitative research method that uses theory as a basis. This qualitative descriptive design format embraces phenomenology and post-positivism. This study aims to describe, summarize the various situations or phenomena of social reality in a society that are the object of research, and try to pull that reality to the surface as a description of certain conditions, situations, or phenomena. The findings obtained are that the colonial influence still imprinted on the person of the Karo people even though the occupation had long since ended. Concerning the Dutch colonial discourse, it is necessary to carry out a deconstruction practice to reverse the Karo people's perspective on the&nbsp;<em>erpangir ku lau</em><em> rites.</em></p> 2019-11-07T13:16:54+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
