The subjects were one male and one female teachers at Pirngadi Christian Senior High School. Specifically, he asked about the types, the frequency of occurrences, the functions of fillers used by each teacher and also differences between the fillers used by the male and female teachers. Mainly, the writer used the theory on the types of fillers from Rose (1998). It was added with the theories of the types of fillers from Stenstrom (1994) and Baalen (2001). Also, he used the theory on the functions of fillers from Stenstrom (1994). The writer used a descriptive qualitative approach, focusing on the types and the functions of fillers.

In the functions of the fillers, the writer found that the types of fillers produced by both the male and female teachers had the functions as a holder to the turn, as a mark of hesitation, as empathizers, as time-creating device, and as an editing term.
