This thesis deals with transitivity analysis on Bilingual Civic 3 Education Textbook For Grade XII by applying Halliday’s[1] theory of Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL) eapecially on transitivity system. A single investigation on the textbook was done, i.e. transitivity systems (process, participant, and circumstance) that are dominantly used in textbook. In analyzing the data, the researcher used the following steps such as reading the textbook, segmenting the data in form of clauses, identifying the types of processes, participants and circumstances, and classifying the clauses into categories and drawing conclusions from the analysis. There were 160 clauses altogether as the data of the analysis. The results of the analysis three process types that occupied mostly in the text, i.e. (1) Mat.Pr, (2) Rel. Int.Att., and (3) Verb Pr. The dominant process types used in the text, i.e. Mat.Pr. = 106 (48.18%). While the rests two, i.e 60 clauses (27.27%) were categorized as Rel. (Int.Attr.) and 42 (19.0%) clauses were categorized as Verb Pr.. Usually, there are two primary participants involved in certain processes, namely Actors and Goal in material, Senser and Phenomenon in mental, Carrier/ Ident. and Attr./Ident. in relational, Sayer and Receiver in verbal process, except Existent in existential and Behaver in behavioral process. The textbook was also constructed by the domination of Location circumstance (both Location of Time and Place), i.e. 36.5% and the second place in numbers was Cir.Acc. to show the place where the action took place with detailed attached information realized by Cir.Acc. The writers of the textbook focused on the actor to show the efforts made by people involved in the text and the events happened or took place. These two transitivity elements were supposed to be important since the text discussed about the history of a country.
