Abstract

Meaning represented in a text may further be represented in a different text. This study examines how students represent the message in song lyrics into their own texts. This study therefore examines students’ comprehension of song lyrics, the representation of their understanding of song lyrics in their own texts, and the meaning making through representational strategies. This study applied a qualitative method. The data of this study were gathered from the students’ interpretation of song lyrics through writing task. The instrument to be used in analyzing the data is a systemic functional grammar (SFG).The result shows that the students are able to interpret the meaning of the song lyrics. Having analyzed the students’ texts using transitivity, the study shows that there are different types of processes and their ways applied in the texts. The finding shows that the differences occur in the use of processes and their functions. There are three dominant processes that appear in the students’ text in representing their interpretation of both songs, i.e. material, relational, and mental processes. However, there are differences in the order of their occurrences. The dominant process applied in the students’ texts of “Rolling in the deep” interpretation is material process. Then it is followed by relational process and mental process. Meanwhile, the dominant process applied in the students’ texts of “Because of you” interpretation is relational process. Then it is followed by material process and mental process. The dominant use of material processes in “Rolling in the deep” interpretation functions to show that the students’ texts describe the material processes that realized in the explicit physical action. Meanwhile, the dominant use of the relational processes in “Because of you” functions to describe the experience happening to the singer. The use of mental processes in the students’ text of both song interpretation functions to disclose mental state of the singer. Construction of interpretation in this case depends on clues from the text and probability, which is determined both by facts from texts and connotations. In relation to the meaning making through representational strategies, the three processes dominated in the students’ text synergized to build the representation of the song meaning related to the meaning which was meant by the song writer. Key words: Experiential meaning, interpretation, representation, song lyrics.
