    Abstract

    In this study, I analyzed the transactional and interpersonal conversation texts found in grade VII English textbook. From the transactional and interpersonal conversation texts found in the English textbook, their writers assume that the conversation texts are compatible with the standard of content as mentioned in curriculum 2006, Curriculum for Each Level of Education ( KTSP or Kurikulum Tingkat Satuan Pendidikan ). The standard of content in KTSP 2006 develops student’s linguistic competence in people’s experience, ideas, and feelings and to understand various meanings. Statement of the standard of content invites my curiosity to conduct this research. Besides the compatibility between EOS English on Sky 1 and the standard of content, I also analyzed how the transactional and interpersonal conversations are realized in the English textbook. This study focuses on the issues : structural-functional approach which analyzes the speech function , structural approach which analyzes linguistic features, social contextual factors approach which analyzes the participants in the interaction and the communicative situation and politeness which analyzes the respect that an individual has for him or herself, and maintaining that "self-esteem" in public or in private situations. This is a qualitative and quantitative study. The data are transactional and interpersonal conversation texts written in grade VII English textbook. Units of analysis in this study are moves, clauses and texts. There are 75 conversation texts in 7 chapters. The moves were analyzed functionally and the clauses were analyzed structurally. The texts were analyzed based on the social contextual factors and politeness. There are 75 conversation texts which consist of 419 clauses in the English textbook. There are 30 texts which present the transactional conversation, 4 texts which present the interpersonal conversation and 41 texts which present both transactional and interpersonal conversations. The result of the analysis reveals that there are 419 moves and 305 moves or 73 % which are compatible with the indicators introduced in the standard of content and there are 114 moves or 27 % which are not compatible with any indicators introduced in the standard of content. There are 11 mood types which are realized in the conversation texts. There are 19 sentence patterns in a set of basic clause constituents. The participant variables in the conversation texts are male and female whose offices are student and teacher. The social distances are intimate and not intimate with their relation is that teacher has higher position than students. The places of conversation are school yard, class, party, home, field, garden, music studio and library and the most frequently occurred is in school yard. The social situations in the conversation texts are formal and informal and the most frequently occurred is informal. There are two politeness strategies that occurred in the conversation texts, positive and negative. The most frequently occurred is positive politeness. It is recommended that the English textbook users, I suggest to them to use the English textbook critically, because there are many speech functions which are not compatible with the indicators introduced in the standard of content. It is also recommended that the next English textbook writers, I suggest to them to write next English textbook that must be compatible with the standard of content.
