Abstract

The genre of newspaper language is quite different compared with other written forms such as text books or literary works. Considering the limitation of the column provided in the media, the sentences written in it should be condensed sometimes. There are many ways to condense sentence, one of them is by using participial phrase as the replacement of the subjects of the sentences, and the change of finite verb into nonfinite verb. For that reason, this paper is aimed to analyze the subject that is omitted and the possibility of tense that is used based on the context; secondly, this paper is aimed to analyze the function of the participial phrase. The research uses descriptive qualitative method by applying syntactical approach. The data are taken from The Jakarta Post on Feb. 1st–8th, 2011 editions, the sections of “Headlines” and “World”. The technique of collecting data is by choosing certain articles, finding the data of participial phrase and classifying the data based on the types of participial phrase: -ing and –ed form, and the positions of participial phrase in a sentence: initial, middle and final. In data analysis, the writer Identifies all data based on the criteria of participial phrase in Frank‟s Modern English, analyzes the data and makes conclusion. As the findings, from the seventy data chosen from article provided in The Jakarta Post, they are classified into three positions of participial phrase in a sentence, in example: initial, middle and final. The initial and final participial phrases, that are constructed by subordinate conjunction „while/when‟ or because/as/since‟, are derived from reduction of adverbial clause. However, the middle participial phrase is a reduction of adjective clause. The sentence that is condensed by omitting the subject of the sentence should be related to the subject in the main clause. The subject of middle participial phrase is located before the verb with different subject in the main clause. Then, the function of initial and final participial phrases is usually adverbial and the middle participial phrase is adjectival.
