Abstract

This study aims to compare the types and functions of swear words spoken by the main female and male characters in the Santa Clarita Diet Netflix series. There are two research problems in this study: (1) what types of swear words are spoken by the main female character compared to the main male character in the Santa Clarita Diet Netflix series; (2) what are the functions of swear words spoken by the main female character compared to the main male character in the Santa Clarita Diet Netflix series. This study used a descriptive qualitative method in relation to phenomena in the form of text. Data were collected from the transcript of the first season of the Santa Clarita Diet series. The transcription is then analyzed by identifying the types and functions of swear words by applying the code in the text. After that, the researcher classified the data to categorize the types and functions of swear words spoken by the main female and male characters. The findings show that there are four of five types of swear words based on Ljung theory (2011) spoken by the main female characters in the Santa Clarita Diet series, namely religious swearing, scatological swearing, sexual activities swearing, and mother (family) swearing. Meanwhile, the male main character uses all five types of swearing based on Ljung's theory (2011), namely religious swearing, scatological swearing, sex organ swearing, sexual activities swearing, and mother (family) swearing. The main female character uses five functions of swear words based on Wajnryb (2005) and Hirsch (1985) theory, namely, cathartic swearing, abusive swearing, social and humoristic swearing, euphemistic swearing, and habitual swearing. Meanwhile, for the main male character, there are four of five functions of swear words based on Wajnryb (2005) and Hirsch (1985) theory, namely cathartic swearing, abusive swearing, social and humoristic swearing, and habitual swearing. The main female and male characters mostly use religious wearing in their utterances. The main female characters tend to use swear words in the cathartic and abusive swearing functions, while the main male characters tend to use swear words in the cathartic and habitual swearing functions. It indicates that the main female character used swear words to express her emotions and insult people. Meanwhile, the main male character used swear words to express his emotions and his habit of adding swear words when speaking.
