Abstract

In this study, the writer has investigated the use of languages at Gang Baru, a traditional market which has special characteristics as the buyers and sellers are Chinese and Javanese. The writer recorded 16 conversations between buyers and sellers. The writer chose two chinese sellers and recorded their conversation with two chinese and two Javanese customers and the conversation between two different Javanese sellers with their two chinese and twom Javanese customers. The data show that the ethnic of the speaker influences the langu age choice. The sellers who are Chinese use some Chinese words, especially when they mention prices to Chinese customers but they do not use them to Javanese customers. Besides, the setting or social context of the interaction which is informal influences the language choices. It requires an informal style of speaking as it is in the traditional market. None of the speakers both buyers and sellers use formal languages. The third one is the topics being talked between the speakers and the hearers determine the language used. The Chinese sellers use Chinese language and the Javanese sellers tend to use informal Indonesian when the topic is about the prices or quantity. The sellers choose the language based on the language used by buyers (the starter). Meanwhile,the data on addressing terms show that the language choice is influenced by age and etnicity. In order to respect the customers who are at the same age or older than the sellers, the sellers call them with Bu, Pak, or Mas. Although the customers that the sellers address are chinese,they do not use any chinese address terms.
