Abstract

Japanese is one of the languages where the differences in women's and men's languages are apparent. The differences in the language of men and women in Japanese can be found in using the Sentence-final Particles. Sentence-final Particles is part of phatic categories. In this study, Sentence-final Particles were translated into Indonesian. The research data source is Gosho Aoyama's meitantei Conan Comic, published by Shogakukan and Indonesian translation published by Elex Media Komputindo. The results showed that only 9.3% of Sentence-final Particles used by men in Japanese translated into Indonesian, 90.7% did not translate. Meanwhile, Sentence-final Particles used by women is only 8.8% translated into Indonesian, 91.2% did not translate. Found also Sentence-final Particles, which translated into other classes of words, namely demonstrative or language punctuation '?'. In addition, several different Sentence-final Particles in Japanese can translate into one word in Indonesian. So, the language characteristics of men and women in Japanese to be lost (neutral). The invisible characteristics of the language of men and women in the translation of Japanese Sentence-final Particles to phatic categories in Indonesian also prove that phatic categories are not language marker that becomes typical of the language of men or women.
