Abstract

The use of Sundanese in folk songs can be a tool to strengthen the integrity of the nation, recognize social identity, thoughts, and culture. Unfortunately, Sundanese folk songs have not been used as a reference by the community to determine their civilization. This study aims to figure out the use of Sundanese language that expresses social criticism in various activities in society. The data were analyzed using the theory of the Hymes SPEAKING model. The results show these folk song lyrics contain forms of social criticism, namely, social values, social politeness, physical behavior patterns, and social interaction. A cyber-pragmatic perspective has used in this study found seven types of social criticism: the influence of foreign cultures, social distance, social status, social interaction using internet-connected gadgets, and vertical relationships between individuals.
