The data are then analyzed with refer to the type of speech functions namely, statement, offer, question and command. The finding indicates that from four types of speech functions found in commercial billboard texts, statement constitute 64 (61 %), question 2 (2%), offer 16 (15.2%), command 23 (22%), demanding 105 billboard texts. Statement can be the most dominant speech function used because the concept of using statement is appropriate with the concept of commercial billboard texts in which the viewers can only see the written texts only in 5-7 seconds while they are driving. Thus, the stating bears simple and strong information in speech function of functional grammar. In fact, only statement that directly can elaborates quality of a product product so that the people believe the product.
