Abstract

Request is a kind of activity that is never separated from humans as social beings. It is also the form of interactional activities in our daily life. People deliver the request strategies depending on their identity, especially their culture. This study aims to explain the use of request strategies by two different cultures, Indonesian and Australian. Indonesia follows the eastern culture, while Australia follows the western culture. Both cultures are interesting objects of the research about request strategies. To define the strategy used by both cultures, the researcher has chosen the theory of request strategies by Blum-Kulka and Olshtain. After applying the theory to the data, the researcher found that both cultures resulted in different direct strategies. However, in other levels of directness, Indonesia and Australia have the same result.
