Abstract

This study investigated ideational grammatical metaphor in the English textbooks of Senior High School. The objectives of the study were to identify what elements of ideational grammatical metaphor were used in Senior High School English textbooks, to describe the way those ideational grammatical metaphor were used, and to explain the reason why the English textbooks of Senior High School used those ideational grammatical metaphors. The research was conducted by applying descriptive qualitative design. The data for this study were texts taken from an English textbook for Senior High School. The data were collected by selecting the texts based on the genre, then retyping the passage of the text, editing the passage by breaking down the clauses into data, and printing out the data. The findings of the study showed that there were four elements of ideational grammatical metaphors used in the English textbooks,namely the realization of epithet = thing, event = thing, event = epithet, and head = modifier. It was found that the reason why the English textbooks used the grammatical metaphors was in order to make the information compact or denser which directs the students to a scientific writing model mostly applied in their higher educational level.
