Abstract

The use of native language in the Yowis ben movie by Fajar Nugros and Bayu Eko Moektito turns it into various language forms. Therefore, the research aims to identify the types of code-mixing and code-switching in the movie. This research uses a qualitative approach. The researcher also played a direct role in the data collection process by determining the data source, listening to and recording data. Based on the discussion of code switching and code mixing in the “Yowis Ben” movie, the conclusions drawn are as follows. First, the code-mixing used in the “Yowis Ben” movie occurred using Indonesian and Javanese language. There are three functions of code-mixing: respecting the addressee, providing information, and clarifying the speech. Second, the code-switching in the “Yowis Ben” movie occurred using the Javanese language. This is because the background of the screenplay depicted actors who are from Malang, East Java. Also, there are three functions of code-mixing: neutralizing the use of language, establishing humour, and getting an immediate response to the speech.
