Abstract

Sitcom (Situational Comedy) as an entertainment breakthrough captures the utilization of daily conversation in a form of media. As one of major adopted features in sitcom, gossip is still overlooked as it is still believed to convey harmful contents. Some linguists argue that its general perception still obstructed the eligibility of gossip to be counted as a matter to be analyzed in linguistic manner. Therefore, the employment of gossip in sitcom is still undervalued. This research aimed to identify the types of gossip along with the features of collaborative style of the dialogues among the main female characters in three episodes of American Sitcom: 2 Broke Girls Season 3, namely 2 Broke Girls and the Kickstarter, 2 Broke Girls and the Cronuts, and 2 Broke Girls and the Piece of Sheets. By adopting qualitative method, those three episodes were broken down into a number of scenes to analyze the types of gossip, namely House-talk, Bitching, Scandal, and Chatting based upon Jones’s (1980) theory and the features of women collaborative style such as topic development, minimal response, hedges, questions, and turn-taking that were suggested by Coates (2013). The study found that all types of gossip and the features of collaborative style were identified within these three episodes. For instance, chatting with hedges as the most frequent features, followed by House-Talk, Bitching, and Scandal with questions as the most frequent features of collaborative style. Gossip caters the establishment of solidarity among the characters through the significant of selfacceptance. Hence, this research suggests that gossip becomes significant as a form of self-expressing and self-improvement rather than as the judgement of third party.
