Abstract

They study attempts to investigate a monologue produced by Nick Vujicic in his testimony in terms of intertextuality with three research question, i.e. (1) what modes of intertextuality does Nick Vujicic adopt to assemble the biblical information into his testimony? (2) what strategies of intertextuality does Nick Vujicic adopt to assemble the biblical information into his testimony? (3) what possible reister does Nick Vujicic adopt in his testimony in terms of linguistic and pedagogical perspective? A testimonial text produce by Nick Vujicic was downloaded from www.lifewithoutlimbs,org. the text was then retyped in Microsoft Office word 2003for ease of text fragmenting during the process of analysis. The corpus data was analyzed on the basis of Fairclough (1992)’s Discour and social change on intertextuality to find out the modes and strategies of intertextuality adopted by Nick Vujicic in his testimonial taxt. Despite the study being in qualitative in nature, quantification in percentage of distribution of modes and strategies of intertextuality and biblical allusion was made to facilitate the process of qualitative analysis. The study reveals that three modes of intertextuality are employed, namely sequential intertextuality (41.12%), embedded intertextuality (5.18%), and mixed intertextuality (53.44%), impliying that the text was a self-reflection. Namely discourse representation (43.12%), presupposition(27.58%), negation (12.06%), metadiscours (6.89%) and irony (10.35%), implying that Vujicic wanted form yo own discourse. Finally two types of biblical allusion are adopted, namely direct allusion (5.17%), indirect allusion (48.27%); the rest (46.56%) is self-reflection, implying that vujicic’s text was proselytizying in nature. The pedagogical implication that can be drawn is that text production cannot be separated from intertextuality; and the study recommends SFL student to read a lot of resource books of interest to supply themselves with materials for possible future intertextuality in writing or public speaking on condition that plagiarism is avoided.
