Abstract

Indonesia has 742 languages from 478 tribes, but the language and literature existed in Indonesia today will soon become extinct. Indonesia Government to protect the language and literature established the Agency of Language and Development and Reconstruction under the Ministry of Education and Culture of Republic Indonesia. The purpose of this research was to describe the function of public relations of the Agency of Language and Development and Reconstruction in publishing the program of language preservation. The study used concept of public relations functions by Cutlip and Center. The research method used was descriptive qualitative. The results of this study indicated the work performance of the public relations of the Agency of Agency of Language and Development and Reconstruction was poor in doing publication. The cause was due to lack of communication with the content providers (Preservation Agency) and content editors (Language Editor). In addition, in bureaucracy, the Public Relations could not directly involve in the language preservation program. The Public Relations department did not participate in the process of drafting, implementing, and evaluating the program.
