ABSTRACT AN ANALYSIS OF CONJUNCTIONS FOUND IN BARACK OBAMA’S SPEECH TEXT By Vicka Arthameivia Fansuri Barack Obama's speeches have always piqued people's curiosity in discussing and analyzing them. Many people throughout the world were waiting for his way of thinking, ideas, and opinions, which were expressed in his speeches, as he was one of the most influential individuals in the world. The objectives of this research were to find out the types of conjunction, the dominant type of conjunction and the function of the dominant type conjunction used on Obama’s speeches. Content analysis research method was applied in order to find out the result of the data analysis. The procedures applied in the data analysis process were highlighting the conjunctions found on the speeches, classifying the conjunction based on their types and finding the functions of the dominant conjunction. The result of the research suggested that; (1) Three types of conjunction were identified from the speeches. The types of the conjunctions were additive, adversative and causal. From the additive type, conjunction “and”, “or” and “for example” were used. Meanwhile from the adversative type, conjunction “but” and “instead” were used. Further, from the causal type, conjunction “yet”, “so”, and “because” were used. (2) The dominant conjunction used on Obama speeches was conjunction “and” as additive type. (3) The dominant conjunction “and” used on the speeches showed four functions, namely joining words together, joining clauses, joining phrases and joining sentences.
