This Thesis investigates the use of register by the characters inside the movie titled “In the Heart of The Sea (2015)”. The researcher finds lot of forms of register from its word classes until its application on their daily activity during works. Lot of terms consists of one or two unique and strange words giving the real sense that the register only used by the old-style sailormen. Various meaning of register and the relation between the user and register they uses are important points to analyze. Using qualitative-descriptive method, the researcher picked the original dialogues of the movie formed as script. Then, the researcher identifies the registers that formed as terms using the light marker and written down the speaker besides the register following by the context. The researcher collected the register in the table completed with the columns of the speaker, register and its meaning. In how to analyze the data, there are two steps of analysis: First, the researcher analyzes the meaning of register using Halliday’s theory including field, tenor, and mode. Second, the researcher explains the relationship between the user and the register they used. Example of the register found in this study is “get the green stuff.” The second problem is interpreting the meaning of the register. In how to analyze the meaning, the context must be identified first. The context here is the sailors loading up the stuff to the ship. When the order has spoken, one of them starts to picking up the vegetables. Then, “green stuff” here means “vegetables”. Overall, the meaning of the register is “loads the vegetables”. The third problem is the relation among the register, speaker, and the hearer. The speaker is the man who use the register as a command, the register used as a request or an order, and the hearer become the doer or the one who taking the action as the response to the intended order.
