1.1 Background of the Study
People live in what the so called social life, which always need companion. In this
case, in order to facilitate their efforts to provide themselves with the necessities
of life, human beings have to cooperate with one another which can only be
carried out in a community.

which is called language. With language they can interact with other people to
