Grammatical alliance in editorial text of newspaper


Maria Ulfa, Mulyadi

This article discusses the grammatical alliance system in editorial text of daily newspaper. The data is taken from complex Indonesian sentences contained in Kompas newspaper editorial texts in the form of a combination of 1) transitive and intransitive clauses, 2) intransitive and transitive clauses, 3) transitive and intransitive clauses, and 4) transitive and transitive clauses. The theory used to analyse aspects formulated in this article is the typology theory proposed by Comrie (1988) modified by Artawa (2004) The results of the data analysis show that the Indonesian language contained in the Kompas newspaper editorial text is included in the typology of accusative and ergative languages ; morphological changes in verbs can lead to the structure of argument clauses that are shaped and marked by zeroes and pronouns; and the basic coreferential system of Indonesian can take the form S = P where, A is different, and S = A, where P is different. While the system of grammatical alliance which is done through the pivot test derived from the clause combination is as follows: 1) S1 = S2, 2). S1 = P2, 3). S1 = A2, 4). P1 = S2, 5). A1 = S2, 6) A1 = A2, 7) P1 = A2, 8) P1 = A2, A1 = P2.
