This study analyzes the language employed by Kompas, Republika, Media Indonesia, and Jawa Pos regarding the relocation of Indonesia’s capital city, focusing on attitude, graduation, and engagement.
Eight online texts were analyzed using discourse analysis.This paper used systemic functional linguistics as a tool to analyze the texts. The findings revealed a predominance of positive attitude data (67.2% positive, 32.8% negative), predominantly heterogloss in engagement (91.8% heterogloss, 8.2% monogloss), and a majority of raising/sharpening graduation data (75.1% raising/sharpening, 24.9% lowering/softening). This disparity between positive and negative appraisal data signifies significant and contentious issues the government, community leaders, and the general public face concerning the capital city’s relocation. The results of news outlets analysis demonstrated how ideological orientations shape the construction of social and political values, influencing public beliefs and perceptions of the capital relocation project in Indonesia.

Mari kita Perbaiki Hubungan dengan ALLAH SWT dan Manusia

Setelah memperbaiki hubungan dengan Allah SWT di bulan ramadhan perlu memperbaiki hubungan dengan manusia

Sebaik apapun hubungan dengan Allah SWT tapi rusak hubungan dengan manusia: suka ngrasani, memfitnah, mem-bully, berbuat aniaya dst akan bangkrut di akhirat jika masih ada salah pada manusia yang belum meng-ikhlas-kan kesalahan-kesalahan kita.
