This research applied the methodology synergy of linguistic corpus and illocutionary speech act analysis. The data in this study included two corpus of cyber bullying taken from stories on several student community accounts on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook in different periods (2012 and 2020). Analysis on words list and collocation was used to see patterns of using the word “lu” in expressing cyber bullying. Furthermore, concordance was used to deepen the analysis of speech acts and to see the data qualitatively. Based on the results of the corpus analysis, 48 patterns of use of the word “lu” were found. Based on the data analysis from the perspective of speech acts, there were five types of speech acts that appear and were dominated by assertive speech in the form of statements containing taunts and negative nicknames.
