Abstract

This study aimed to identify the utterances of Particularized Conversational Implicature (PCI), its implied meanings, and its functions. Particularized Conversational Implicature is a kind of conversational implicature that required specific context to calculate the additional conveyed meaning. PCI appears as the result of flouting Gricean’s maxim. Thus when people flout one of the maxims, they don’t really want to break the conversation, but they intended to convey the special meaning behind it. In conducting this study, the writer used descriptive qualitative method to analyze the data. The writer used two theories from Grice about particularized conversational implicature and Searle about five general functions of speech act classification. The data are collected by identifying PCI based on flouting the maxims and analyze the implied meaning by concerning to the specific context. The results show that there are 14 utterances of PCI found in The Vampire Diaries season 2. Those utterances come from flouting the maxim of relation and manner. It shows that when the characters in The Vampire Diaries season 2 flout the conversational maxims they are not really intend to break the conversation, but they want other characters to be aware of their implied meanings. By applying PCI utterances the characters use it in order to inform, to express, to ask and to refuse something from other characters.
