Language as a means of communication not only has a function to
communicate meaning but also has a form. In using language, people have their
own linguistic choices. By this perception, the writer conducts her research by
investigating linguistic choices of the main character in "Freaky Friday" movie.
The writer interested to analyze this movie because in this movie, she sees the
linguistic choices play important role to reveal the real identity of the speaker.
According to Saussure, no two persons who speak alike. The writer uses this fact
in order to help her to find the clue to solve the problem that is to find the typical
linguistic choices used by Anna and Mrs. Coleman. After collecting the data, the
writer analyzes the linguistic choices of the main characters by using two clues,
that are referent and typical diction. From this finding, the writer found out certain
typical linguistic choices form the main characters. The writer found that
someone?s typical linguistic choices couldn?t be changed even though the soul
enters the other?s body. Afterwards, it turns out the writer can conclude that
linguistics property advanced by Ferdinant de Sausurre proves to be useful tool to
unpack the problem in "Freaky Friday" movie.
