Language style is characterized by the degree of formality. Related with Joos’s theory (1976) in his Five O’clocks, the theory is divided into five types, those are frozen, formal, casual, consultative and intimate. Based on Holmes’ theory (1992) language use is influenced by some relevant factors such as participant, setting, topic and function. The types of language styles which help the researcher to analyze the language style are based on Joos’s theory (1976). Besides, some previous studies from FatkhulAmri(2014) and Deci Erma (2015), inspire the researcher a lot in analyzing the social factors, since their studies also analyzed the social factors. Qualitative content analysis and descriptive research designs are chosen to investigate the social factors which consist of language style. The researcher herself becomes the only instrument – human instrument. Reading and selecting the entire movie scripts of “Frozen” movie become the steps of data collection. Then, the procedures of data analysis contain identifying, classifying, and analyzing the data. Drawing the conclusion is the last step required. The research data are from conversation which has relation with four types of language style . The most dominant language style that used by all characters in Frozen is casual style. It appears in seventeen utterances. Then, formal style appears in nine utterances. Next, consultative style appears in eight utterances. The last, intimate style appears in five utterances. Meanwhile, frozen style is not found in character’s language style because they do not have authority to use frozen style and the social factor also does not influence them to use it. Finally the researcher hopes this thesis could give contribution for the next researchers, the teachers and the students. Moreover, some recommendations are given to the next researchers who will do the same research on the language style.
