Presentation on students' creative language partly known as collocation

  1. 1. 5/3/2015 LIA Int’l Conference 2015, April 29 – May 1, Yogyakarta 1 STUDENTS’ CREATIVE LANGUAGE IN ACTION: TO WHAT EXTENT IS IT ACCEPTABLE COLLOCATION? By: Ferry Antoni
  2. 2. 5/3/2015 LIA Int’l Conference 2015, April 29 – May 1, Yogyakarta 2 Students’ English  Common fixed phrases or expressions (CP) vs creative language (CL)  Lower-order thinking language functions vs higher-order thinking language functions  Acquiring, picking vs learning, creating
  3. 3. 5/3/2015 LIA Int’l Conference 2015, April 29 – May 1, Yogyakarta 3 Examples  CP  thought-provoking, own gadget, their own gadget, people have their own gadget, who doesn’t know alcohol?  CL  imagination burst out, makes imagination burst out, makes my imagination burst out (Phrases and expressions taken from Antoni and Radiana 2001 and Antoni 2009, and students’ current works); ‘Innovative Your Mood Living’ (A slogan of a furniture business in Cimareme, Padalarang)
  4. 4. 5/3/2015 LIA Int’l Conference 2015, April 29 – May 1, Yogyakarta 4 Nature of Creative Language: Collocation  Building blocks of language, phrases, expressions, creative language, collocation  Chomsky (1965 and 1966): the creative aspect of language  Creative language, collocation: “a group of words students create which belong together and which are accepted to be common and/or English-sounding as judged by native speakers of English or as used by a majority of users”
  5. 5. 5/3/2015 LIA Int’l Conference 2015, April 29 – May 1, Yogyakarta 5 Categories  Common fixed phrases or expressions (CP)  Common idioms (CI)  Expressions prompted by local pragmatic norms and cultural values (EP) (Antoni and Gunawan 2005 and Antoni 2010)  CL (Examples taken from Antoni and Radiana 2001 and Antoni 2009, and students’ current works)
  6. 6. 5/3/2015 LIA Int’l Conference 2015, April 29 – May 1, Yogyakarta 6 Examples  CP  obvious  CI  obvious  EP  Where are you going?, I want to thank God for the opportunity given to me to present this essay, I am sorry if I made mistakes in my presentation. Mistakes are from me, the truth is from God (Antoni and Gunawan 2005 and Antoni 2010)  CL  make the information as a motivator, refresh our mind, make our motivation higher, disavowing God’s existence, marry the same gender, disobey the limit (Antoni and Radiana 2001 and Antoni 2009)
  7. 7. 5/3/2015 LIA Int’l Conference 2015, April 29 – May 1, Yogyakarta 7 Students’ CL: More Examples - Do criminal activity; they get drunk and do criminal activity - Prepared my mentality; I had prepared my mentality since my mother told me… - The awesomeness of the temple; the awesomeness of the biggest temple; we couldn’t feel the awesomeness of the biggest temple Borobudur - My imagination burst out; makes my imagination burst out - Take a pray; in the morning after take a pray - The taste is delicious
  8. 8. 5/3/2015 LIA Int’l Conference 2015, April 29 – May 1, Yogyakarta 8 Verification: How Students’ CL Is Acceptable - Intelligibility - Native speakers’ assessment - Commonness—its coinage and use by others  Google “fixed phrase” search e.g. ‘professional hypocrisy’, ‘awakening dormant customers’
  9. 9. 5/3/2015 LIA Int’l Conference 2015, April 29 – May 1, Yogyakarta 9 Verification: How Students’ CL Is Acceptable (Cont.) - In the absence of native speakers’ assessment  intelligible and common to a degree, i.e., Google “fixed phrase” search results (as of the time they were searched):  refresh our mind (32,200), make our motivation higher (4), disavowing God’s existence (5,260),
  10. 10. 5/3/2015 LIA Int’l Conference 2015, April 29 – May 1, Yogyakarta 10 Verification: How Students’ CL Is Acceptable (Cont. 2) marry the same gender (23,000), disobey the limit (20,700), (they) do criminal activity (3,200), prepared my mentality (9,650), the awesomeness of the temple (5), take a pray (61,500), the taste is delicious (140,000). When moderated, use the information as a motivator (6), let my imagination burst out (10)
  11. 11. 5/3/2015 LIA Int’l Conference 2015, April 29 – May 1, Yogyakarta 11 Implication on Teaching - Teach CP - Moderate students’ CL or collocations - Encourage extensive reading - Fixed the grammar e.g. I have to take my mother to the hospital  I had to take my mother to the hospital; I am flu  I am having a flu (Antoni and Gunawan 2005 and Antoni 2010)
  12. 12. 5/3/2015 LIA Int’l Conference 2015, April 29 – May 1, Yogyakarta 12 Conclusion Students’ CL should be encouraged in such a way that it is only intelligible and acceptable dwelling on the criteria just proposed
