    Abstract

    This research dealt with the interpersonal, ideational, and textual meanings which were found in the students‘ recount texts. The object of study was the recount texts of the eighth grade students of SMP 2 Kudus in academic year of 2014/2015. The method of the study is discourse analysis which analyzed interpersonal meanings, ideational meanings, and textual meanings in the students‘ recount texts. Therefore, the data were analyzed by using descriptive qualitative analysis in which quantitative data were also used to provide deeper analysis. The Interpersonal meanings analysis analyzed the MOOD and modality; the ideational meanings analysis analyzed Transitivity; and the textual meanings analysis analyzed the thematic structure. The result of the study showed three points of conclusion. Firstly, in term of interpersonal meanings which analyzed MOOD and modality analysis showed that the students recount texts represented a one-way communication which had function to give information about personal experience to the readers in the past time. It can be seen from the data analysis which showed that all of the students used declarative mood types in their recount texts, through declarative mood types, the students made statements. Most of the students used finite simple past in their recount texts, it states about the students‘ experiences in past time. Most of the students also used nouns as the subject of the clause that were categorized in subject ―Others‖ in the analysis, and the students rarely used modality in their recount texts. Secondly, in term of ideational meaning analysis which analyzed the Transitivity analysis showed that the students‘ recount texts told about the students‘ experiences in particular place and time. It can be seen from the dominant occurrence of the data analysis was material process and circumstance of location. Thirdly, in term of textual meanings which analyzed the Thematic structures analysis showed that the clauses mostly used ideational theme. And the researcher found that the dominant ideational theme which occurred in the students‘ recount texts was unmarked topical theme. The students used high nominalization in their recount texts because they frequently used subjects and circumstances as the nominalization in the beginning of the clauses. It can be stated that the texts are in form of written texts. Finally, based on the research, it is expected that metafunctions can develop students‘ writing skill, so they can compose meaningful texts and misinterpretation in interpreting the meaning can be avoided.
