Abstract

The objectives of this paper are (1) to identify the kind of sexual register used on the book of Moammar Emka “Jakarta: Undercover 2”, (2) to identify the stage of meaning of sexual register, and (3) to identify the use of sexual English register. It is a qualitative descriptive research. The data for this research are English phrases of sexual register taken from Jakarta Undercover 2 book by Moammar Emka. The book tells about the ‘nite life’ and its community in Jakarta. The object of research is registers related to sexual activity found in the book. The data is analyzed by choosing and arranging certain sexual register alphabetically, grouping the register based on the meaning, classifying and determining the types of register, and elaborating the contextual meaning based on their classification. The study shows that there are only two registers used in the book,i.e. Formal and informal registers. The formal registers are 13,5% and the informal registers are 86,5%. From 22 regsiters found in the book, 13,5% registers are at literal meaning only and 16,5% are at explicature meaning. By using SPEAKING of Hymes', it is known that the setting and scene of the use of sexual registers are in public spaces where people from “nite community” meet. The ends are to inform the tendency of people who occupied with “nite” sexual activity. The act sequence is to chatt as presexual intercourse activity and done with prostitute, massager, and hostess. The key is casual language that might be classified as informal language that shows close and intimate relationship. The social norms used by “nite” society are free sex and safe sex that shows that free and safe sex is inherent with nite community. The genre of all registers is nonfiction, because all of them are taken from writer’s experience, not imagination.
