This study is about the types and function of figure of speech produced by
Leopold in Kate and Leopold movie. The writer wants to find out the kind of
Leopold?s figure of speech in his utterances and also to analyze the function of
figure of speech itself. The writer uses Perrine?s theory to analyzing types of
figure of speech and Searle?s theory to analyzing the function of figure of speech.
The writer describes this research design, in this case, the approach of the study
and how she collects and analyzes the data. She uses qualitative approach as the
method of the study. The analysis itself consists of choosing the type of figure of
speech, deciding the function of figure of speech and mapping both of them into a
table. From the findings, the writer may infer several points. From the findings, it
can be seen that the most dominated figure of speech that Leopold used are simile
and hyperbole. Moreover, the highest number of figure of speech that can be seen
in this study is hyperbole; it can be meant that the movie writer likes to express
his message with exaggerated words. From the language function, the writer
found that in this study the most dominated language function is expressive types.
It can be conclude that figure of speech can be used to express feeling that can not
or hard to explain through ordinary sentence. Figure of speech also helps to make
the function of a sentence clearer and stronger.
