English as the international language is used by most people in this world to interact each other. Each of the country has differentiation in using English. Some of them use it as the second language and some others as the foreign language. Indonesia is one of the countries that uses English as the foreign language. Colloquialism is a part of human’s communication which cannot be understood directly by the foreigner, except by its speaker. The problems that have been formulating by me were to find out the meaning of colloquialism consisting of the aspects of context of colloquialism and the context of colloquial meaning. This research used several theories related to the problems. The theories, however, comprise colloquialism, pragmatics, aspect of context, and context of colloquial meaning. Aspects of context are physical context, linguistic context, epistemic context, and social context. Those aspects of context are used to find the context of colloquial meaning. Descriptive method was used in this research to describe about 20 of 1346 data as sample which were divided into two types of colloquialism comprising words and idioms. The four aspects of context was used to find the context of colloquial meaning. The collected data were analyzed by using several steps, namely identifying data into two types of colloquialism, clasifying data into each aspects of context, and interpreting data into context of colloquial meaning. Having analyzed the data, it was found that there are 1346 cases of colloquialism in the novel. It was also found that there were only thirteen of 20 data that fulfill four aspects of context, namely physical, linguistic, epistemic, and social context. The rest of them did not have social context which showed social relation of the speaker and the hearer. This is happened when the speaker and the hearer met for the first time and there are not any related information about it. These finding showed that the comprehension of aspedcts of context help me to identify the context of colloquial meaning of the colloquialism, such as the usage of auxiliary, to be, idiom, conjunction, tenses, blending, pronoun, and idiom.
