Pragmatics is the study about meaning that uttered by the speaker and interpreted by the listener. In pragmatics, deixis is one part that is studied. Deixis is a site and used for identifying people, object, event, process or an activity that is being spoken or referred into space and time dimension.This research is purposed to identify the kinds of deixis and to interpret deixis in Johnson’s speech We Shall Overcome. The writer uses the theory of Levinson (1983). This theory helps the writer to analyze the data finding in order to know the types of deixis and to interpretation of deixis on Lyndon Baines Johnson’s speech. It is a qualitative research. Since the data collected in the form of words rather than numbers and it is more concerned with process.

Then, place deixis are here and there. Next, time deixis are tonight, last week, a century, two centuries, now, tomorrow, yesterday, last time, eight long months, hundred years, twenty years ago, last tuesday, dan afternoon Furthermore, the discourse deixis are this, that, those and these. Afterwards, the social deixis are father, the majesty, president, police, teacher, speaker, senator, majority leader, minatory majority, and members of both parties. The interpretation of deixis on Johnson’s speech, first person deixis mostly interpreted as a speaker, Lyndon Baines Johnson. Second person deixis can be interpreted as a replacement for someone who has a role as addressees, and third person deixis can be interpreted to third parties other than the speaker or the person being addressed. Time deixis is generally expressed in the whole time on Johnson’s speech. Place deixis concerns with the encoding of spatial locations relative to the location of the participants in the speech event. Discourse deixis can be interpreted to some portion of the discourse that contains that utterance (including the utterance itself). The last, social dexis concerns the encoding of social distinctions that are relative to participant’s roles. From the analysis above, it can be concluded that the use of deixis on Lyndon Baines Johnson’s speech is very important. With the use of deixis, misunderstanding will not happen because both the speaker and addressee will understand about what is talking about. Moreover, the analysis above on the use of deixis clearly shows the close relationship between context and the deictic expression must be adjusted with the context in which the speech takes place.
