A.   Background of the Study
             Linguistic has important role in human life. Almost all activities relate to
language. Interaction man with the humanity in everyday life, because man is social
creature which cannot live itself. In interaction with fellow being, linguistic consumer
requires equipment or supporting facilities in order to the thought of to be
understandable by others. Basically discussion about language cannot be discharged
by the relationship with communications even is told that language itself is
communication tool. Way of communicating is with existence of activity orates,
where one can do communications two directions in submitting opinion or idea
between orator with the audiences.
             The dramatic events are often caused by the greet speeches. It is real
consideration that speech is absolutely significant. There are many evidences, which
show that speech has a special position historically. Many people have wrong
analysis, if they say that the progress of the west world is natural science standing
on language education for centuries. It is the root of the Greek philosophy based on
rhetoric. It means that language and speech have big role in human civilization
             There are many greet speeches in the world, which are recorded and
become external texts. Many world figures’ speeches are quoted orally or written in
various times by many people. Many people are interested in quoting someone else’s
speech. It proves that speech is effective to deliver important message, but the thing
that is interesting to be discussed here is in language side of speech. It is about style.

its technique is valuable discussion, the eloquence of speech has to consider with text
perform and style of speech. Speech, speech communication, oral communication, or
oral public, oral public speaking is the modern book De Arte Rhetorica by Aristotle, a
classic rhetorical expert we get five speech arranging steps called the five canons of
rhetoric. They are Inventio (invention), Disposito (organizing), Elocito (Style),
Memoria (memory), and Pronuntiao (pronunciation).
             From the steps above, we can find “style “as the step which is most
related to the language use. According Keraf (1986:113), style is way of laying open
mind through language characteristically showing soul and writer personality
(language consumer). Through in oral or written language, a quality that gives

(figurative language, imager, and so on). Relation with speech as an object of study,
the writer uses the parts of style categorization in rhetorical form. According to
Abrams (1981:193) the rhetorical forms of style are figurative language and

H. Research Method

  a. Objective of the Study

             The objective of the study is the speech text that is delivered by
     President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono in Coral Triangle Initiative Summit

   b. Source of the Data

             It is a source where data can be obtained. It can be things, people, etc.
     the source of data is divided into two, namely: (1) main data, (2) supporting
     data. The source of the main data is in English speech text of President Susilo
     Bambang Yudhoyono that is delivered to open Coral Triangle Initiative
     Summit 2009 in May, 15-5-2009 in Manado. The supporting data of the
     research are taken from other resources which related to the topic.

   c. Technique Collecting Data

             In connection with the technique of collecting data, Sudayanto (1992:
     33-35) suggests five techniques in linguistics research. They are: (1) Teknik
     rekam (recording technique), the technique using recording instrument,(2)
     Teknik catat (noting technique), the technique using card, book, note and other
     instrument, to collect data,(3) Teknik pisah (separating technique), the strategy
     to separate datum to another to find out the similarities and the differences
     between them,(4) Teknik balik (transferring technique), the strategy to transfer
 data into another,(5) Teknik Ganti (changing technique), the strategy used to
 change the data which are not necessary in an understanding.

         The writer uses three techniques in this research namely noting
 technique, separating technique, and transferring technique. The reason are :
 (1) the writer looks for the related materials in any library and reads them to
 get deep understanding, (2) the writer writes the discussed materials on the
 provided books or notes, (3) separated style categorization to get the
 differences of them, (4) transfer those materials in the writer’s proposal by
 writing quotation, paraphrase, and conclusion.

d. Technique of analyzing data

          The technique of analyzing data is the second step to carry out the
  research after collecting or presenting data. Mahsun (2000:61) says that is
  descriptive synchronic research, the three steps of conducting the research are:
  presenting the data, analyzing the data, and finding out the result of the
  research. Analyzing the data becomes a step that is very crucial in research. In
  analyzing the data, the writer uses descriptive quantitative technique. The first
  step, the writer describes the data that has relation with style.

         That description is done qualitatively, and then the data is grouped
 based on style categorization in rhetorical form consists of (1) Figurative of
 Thought, (2) Figures of speech, (3) Imagery used by president Susilo Bambang
 Yudhoyono in Coral Triangle Initiative Summit 2010 speech text.. After that to
 achieve the objective research, the writer does it quantitatively.
