Abstract

This research explores pragmatic aspects in Anne Hathaway’s speech addressed on the commemoration of International Mother’s Day in the UN forum in 2017. The data of this research are in the form of utterances used in the speech. The data are analyzed using speech act theory of language use which is covered in pragmatics. The results show that based on the theory of speech acts, Anne Hathaway uses four kinds of speech acts covering directives, assertive, expressive, and commissure. There is no declaration found in the speech. In delivering her speech, Hathaway uses an effective language covering both direct and indirect utterances.
