Abstract

Deixis is directly concerned with the relationship between the structure of a language and the context in which the language is used (Huang, 2007). The previous studies on deixis by local scholars focused on indigenous languages and advertisement texts. Notably that of Kamila (2006), who studied person deixis and space deixis (ini, itu, di sini and di situ) in Mah Meri. Burenhult (2004) also examined the spatial deixis in Jahai language in Hulu Perak, while Mohammad Fadzeli (2009) described the ambiguity of person, time and spatial deixis contained in a housing advertisement text. Based on these observation, studies that put forward Malay dialect in investigating deixis are still lacking. Therefore, the aim of this study is to examine the categories and functions of the deixis elements in Kedah dialect particularly Kubang Lintah village, Lepai parish and Kota Setar district (will be referred to as DKKS henceforth). Data was obtained through observation and recorded conversations to catagorize the types of deixis and the functions of deixis in this dialect. The deixis categorisation is analysed in accordance to Huang’s deixis (2007). The study found that DKKS contain elements of person deixis that is expressed by personal pronouns and vocatives, which can be expressed by calls or summonses. DKKS also exhibits categories of time deixis and space deixis. In addition, the finding shows that social deixis is closely associated with person deixis which is concerned with codification of the social status of the speaker, the addressee, or a third person or entity referred to, as well as the social relationships between them. Analysis of the deixis also describes the categories and the functions of the deixis elements in the Kedah dialect. In DKKS, the usage of these elements also creates aspects of multi-function. In conclusion, an analysis of the deixis gives an overview of the socio-cultural and the courtesy in conversation, as exemplified by the participants from DKKS.
