Abstract

The study attempts to investigate Semantic Knowledge in the “Brazen” short story by Elaine Hopper. The researcher has an interest to use utterances in this short story because the characters use semantic knowledge. The theory used is one proposed by Kreidler (2002). This final project is descriptive qualitative in nature, therefore it only describes the semantic knowledge of the data. The data were documented on the bases of the unit of analysis and analyzed on the basis of semantic knowledge theory. The results of the study indicate that 29 utterances contain semantic knowledge in Elaine Hopper’s short story, Brazen. Data are classified into reference (13,79%), proposition(51,72%), hyperbole (6,90%) and connotative (27,59%). Proposition is mostly used in the utterances of Elaine Hopper’s short story. Some of the conversations employ reference, some use the figure of speech, hyperbole and connotative.
