Abstract

The development of tourism in Bali has contributed many positive impacts on the economy of the local community. The availability of professional human resources who have good foreign language skills has become very important in tourism development. This has led the increase of the interest of young generation to master foreign languages. Unfortunately, this condition has made their interest in mastering the local language has declined so that nowadays many young Balinese people have problem to use their Balinese in their daily communication. Meanwhile, Bali has a system of caste level which needs the language courtesy. For the reason, this study is very important to be conducted to examine how Balinese system realizes polite communication. From the collected data it was found that the speakers who can’t master Balinese still have a chance to make polite communication when a situation has to force them to speak polite Balinese
