As a form of marketing strategy, advertising did ideological work and it played an important role in identity formation. In those cases, the motivations typically involved international, success, future, fun and sophistication orientation which were closely identified with mixing English (modernity); 4) In addition to being presented in English, foreign words turned to enjoy the potential to make a specific product or brand name more appealing and memorable, and this trait of foreign words can be used in Indonesian print advertising discourse.
