Abstract

The era of social media has contributed a lot in influencing our language attitudes and behavior, especially among teenagers. Through social media, many unique linguistic phenomena have emerged. One of them is the phenomenon of mixing Javanese and English (Javenglish) in an unusual manner. This research discusses Javanese-Indonesian code switching on tweeter's tweets. This study uses a qualitative descriptive method with a source of data from tweets on Twitter social media. The results of this study indicate that the Javenglish phenomenon occurs in the form of interference, code mixing, and code switching. This Javenglish phenomenon shows language creativity among teenagers that deserves an appreciation. In addition, the results of the analysis show that the phenomenon of Jawanesia (Javanese-Indonesian code switching) in tweets on Twitter includes three patterns, namely inter-sentential code switching, intra-sentential code switching, and symbolic code switching or emblematic switching. The form of code switching in a twitter tweet can be in the form of words, phrases or clauses. The use of Javanese-Indonesia code switching has several functions, namely refining, coarsening, upgrading, and transferring. The phenomenon of Jawanesia in tweets on Twitter is a form of language creativity, which does exist, especially for Indonesians who are bilingual.
