Abstract


Abstract: This research focuses on the child-directed speech found in the conversations between 2-year-old Rose, her parents and closest family members. The purpose this research is to analyze the language functions and to explore the role of child-directed speech in adding vocabulary to Rose's language acquisition. This research is a qualitative descriptive study. The data were taken from Rose's videos in the YouTube and Instagram channels "Flavcity with Bobby Parrish”. Halliday's (1992:11) language function were used to analyze the data. The finding shows that the functions of child-directed speech used by parents and those closest to Rose consist of instrumental, regulatory, representational, interactional, personal, and heuristic functions. The finding also reveals that that Rose can clearly understand what her parents and people around her are saying or instructing. Rose also often repeats spoken words that she may never have heard before, which is great for adding vocabulary to Rose's first language acquisition.
