Abstract

This study deals with logical meanings in Indonesian newspaper story texts (INSTs). Three problems are addressed in this study, namely the inquiry on types of logical meaning in INSTs, investigation on the dominant type of logical meaning and explanation on the occurrence of the dominant type. The data were obtained from twenty four texts of four Indonesian newspapers, namely daily Kompas (K), Republika (R), Waspada (W) and Sinar Indonesia Baru. The texts were analyzed by applying sy~temic functional linguistics (SfL) theories. The occurrences of logical meaning were quantitatively analyzed by converting them into percentages to detennine the proportions. The findings indicate that there are ten types of logical meaning are tound in JNSTs, namely ( 1) paratactic elaboration, (2) pararactic extension, (3) paratactic enhancement, (4) paratactic locution, {5) hypotatic elaboration, (6-l hypotactic extension, (7) hypotactic enhancement, (8) hypotactic locutionl'9} hypotactic idea and ( 1 0) pseudo projection. Of the ten categories of the logical meaning, hypo tactic locution dominantly occurs in INSTs with the proportion of almost one third (29. 75%) of the total occurring of logical meanings. The reason for the dominant occurrence of hypotactic ocut10n ts t e JOum tst or reporter functions to project reality (social and natural) to the readers. This is sought in the social context of INSTs, specifically in the Situation where the journalist firstly represents reality in linguistic experience, which is eventually projected or recoded in another linguistic representation.
