Abstract

The objective of this research is to examine the report of blasphemy of Sukmawati's controversial "Ibu Indonesia" poem from analysis of lexical semantic, pragmatic and sociolinguistic viewpoint. Based on the poem and its contextual data after the case reported, semantic features, content analysis, and Stimulus-Response-Feedback depicted interrelation between the poem and following statements around it. The results of the analysis show that there are negative and positive elements in the verse of poem and accompanying statements. These elements include 1) intention, 2) awareness, 3) ignorance, 4) culture, and 5) faith. From the results of the study it can be concluded that the poem by Sukmawati in a lexical semantics contain elements of Islamic insulting sentences related to "veil" and "adzan" but are preceded by sentences that contain elements of ignorance (or lack of knowledge). On the other hand, the statement following around the poem has an intentional element and an apology is acknowledged. Culturally, the poem "Ibu Indonesia" contains Javanese cultural values that have long existed and are used by the community before Islamic culture dispersing to the majority of Indonesin people which then offended their islamic faith.
