Abstract

This research aimed to explore the representation of Javanese honorific lexicon in Javanese textbook. This research employed a descriptive qualitative approach by analyzing two Javanese-language books used in learning Javanese language in junior high school. This research was conducted using textual analysis method to map honorific vocabulary and literature study. The result of research showed that Javanese-language textbook is one of vehicles to achieve competency. Nevertheless, teaching material sometimes pays attention inadequately to honorific use to others. The honorific use in Javanese language can function to be identity and communication medium for the speaker. Honorific use in Javanese social culture can indicate the politeness of corresponding language user. The use of Javanese language reflecting politeness is conducted by using fine lexicon form. Fine lexicon is used to respect the speech partner. Fine lexicon can be used as honorific lexicon to others. Honorific lexicon in Javanese textbook is represented in teaching material in the form of lexicon form and lexicon form use. The option of lexicon form chosen was fine lexicon. The use of lexicon was adjusted with situation and social factor.
