Abstract

The paper investigated non-observance of maxims among Indonesians and foreigners male and female passengers at Indonesian airport when the customs officers were checking the passengers. Specifically, it analyzed the types of non-observance of maxims along with the possible reasons as to why the passengers broke the maxims. This descriptive qualitative research applied the theory of Cooperative Principles by Grice (1975) to identify the maxims in a conversation between passengers and customs officers and Christoffersen’s (2005) theory in analyzing the possible reasons for breaking maxims. The data were taken from a transcription video of a reality show entitled “Customs Protection” that were obtained from its Youtube channel. The findings revealed that the passengers broke the Maxim of Quantity, the Maxim of Quality, and the Maxim of Relation. Also, the passengers were flouted more on the Maxims of Quantity in the conversation. Moreover, most of the maxims were broken due to the reason to convince someone. The passengers were likely to flout the maxim of quantity to convince the customs officer with an indicator to avoid the process of customs declaration for each item that the passengers brought from overseas. Even though the phenomena of non-observance maxims might help the passenger to trick, the customs officer did not easily believe the passengers' answer. Hence, all of the passengers have to follow the regulation and the procedure that is valid in Indonesia, which is an obligation for every passenger, especially to pay tax for new items that were brought from overseas.
