Abstract

Exploring the quality of language use is interesting as it reflects how the young writers compose their stories. In Indonesia, there have been publications of such literary works as novel or short stories written by young writers from different backgrounds, which might result in different styles of writing. This article discusses the quality of the Indonesian language text stories employed by Indonesian young writers that are popularly referred to as teen literature. Teen literature in the form of short stories and novels were collected and analyzed from a linguistics point of view. The focus of analysis was more on the text texture. The analysis of text texture involves the lexicogrammar and the diction or the illocution of the words. In addition, the expression of the speech act of the utterances in the stories was also analysed. The result shows that the young writers have the ability to perform effective grammatical structure related to the complex construction of sentences and also the choice of speech adjectives to be used in the dialogue in the story texts. However, some weaknesses in grammatical structure and speech act also still occur in some parts of the story texts analyzed.
