    Abstract

    The background of the study in this research is that in English education, the goal of English teaching for junior high school is to achieve discourse competence involving producing text either transactional or interpersonal in a particular context. We have to know whether or not the analysis of context of situation displayed in the dialogue presented in the textbook portrays the students’ need and their interest. The context of situation involves field, tenor and mode. In order to get the finding of this thesis objectively, I conducted a research, provided with qualitative approach. The data used was in the form of discourse, sentence, phrase and words gained from dialogue 1 up to10 that were found English textbook, entitled “English or Sky” 2, published by Erlangga. Method of data Collection was documentation. The data were analyzed using the Context of Situation analysis as formatted by David Butt (122-140). The data were analyzed by using descriptive qualitative analysis. To make the interpretation comprehensible, the data were analyzed in two sections namely lexicogrammar and contextual description. The lexicogrammar portrays the transitivity within the field, mood within the tenor and thematic choices within the mode while contextual descriptions interpret the situation within transitivity, mood and thematic choices in the dialogue presented in the textbook. From the analysis, it was found that the field reflected in transitivity processes conducted by the participants in the dialogue is mainly material portraying tangible physical action. The tenor reflects the equal status between student and student and the language they use is mostly informal and the mode reflects a face to face conversation, thus the dialogues are totally spoken. The dialogues presented in the textbooks mostly produce interpersonal conversation rather than transactional one. The research is expected to be useful to improve the teacher and student knowledge in discourse analysis particularly concerning with context of situation including filed, tenor and mode. The research is also expected to be useful for textbook’s writer in order to consider contexts of situation in writing material within English textbook.
