Abstract

This thesis discusses the application of Semantic mechanisms of humor in parody of the news as a medium of satire in "Rumah Kopi" column in Siwalima newspaper. The writer wants to investigate what does the parodist wants to satirize through his parodies and what kinds of semantic mechanisms of humor are found in parodies. In writing this thesis, the writer uses theory of Parody and Satire and Semantic theory about mechanisms of humor, semantic ambiguity truth-conditional semantic and theory of characterization. The writer uses a qualitative method in analyzing the data. The data she uses is the dialogues between two persons or more in the form of parody, taken from ?Rumah Kopi? column in Siwalima newspaper that is published in Ambon-Maluku. The writer collects the data from 27 January until 5 February 2001. The analysis of the data contains two parts. The first is the analysis of parody as a medium of satire and the second is the analysis of semantic mechanisms of parody. From the first one, the writer finds that by using the formula of Parody which includes the formula of satire, the writer finds what parodies are presented by the parodist (can be found in Code A, that is the code of the author) and what the parodist wants to satirize through his parodies (can be found in Code C, that is the code of the object of criticism). Besides, the parodist mostly uses imagery to imitate the news text. While the analysis of semantic mechanisms of parody guides the writer to find out that all parody use unexpected meaning to surprise the readers and grammatical ambiguity is the most frequently violated linguistic element.
