Even though the information has been delivered routinely and centrally, students sometimes miss the announcement. This condition causes the need for a more effective method of accommodating FAQs (frequently asked questions) so that students can find information related to lectures, proposal exams, thesis exams, and other information related to study programs. This study aims to implement four essential components in the multimodal communication model in conveying information in the English Literature Study Program, Faculty of Letters, Universitas Warmadewa in providing fast and accurate information. This research is field research located in the English Literature Study Program, Faculty of Letters, Universitas Warmadewa. The data sources are documents and policies in the English Literature Study Program. Data were collected from academic guidelines, proposal &amp; thesis guidebooks, academic calendars, curriculum, and other documents that support the educational process at the English Literature Study Program. FAQs were collected through interviews with the Head of the English Literature Study Program. This study shows the use of textual modes organized in categories to connect commands and information in the database.</p> 2023-01-26T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 IJOTL-TL: Indonesian Journal of Language Teaching and Linguistics Conversational Topic Preferences, Taboo Words and Euphemisms Used by Male and Female Teachers of Pangasinan State University-Sta.Maria Campus 2023-02-03T14:36:34+00:00 Marlon Perado <p><strong><em>Abstract </em></strong></p> <p>Though teachers have the noblest profession, they are not exempted from using taboos and euphemisms. They also use a language they prefer to express themselves.</p> <p>This paper investigates the conversational topic preferences, use of taboo words, euphemisms, and cathartic words of teachers. Results of the study revealed that (1) sex is the most preferred topic by male teachers while work-related matters are for females;</p> <p>(2) in terms of topics that should be kept private, both groups dealt with personal lives; (3) both male and female teachers spill offensive words as cathartic expressions to show anger or fright; (4) when provoked, both respondents tend to utter harsh words to inflict insult or hurt on other people; (5) male utter more varied and more degrading expressions while females avoided the more insulting and derogatory cuss word; and (6) friends prove to be the most influential where they learn cuss words followed by media and neighborhood.&nbsp;</p> 2023-01-28T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 IJOTL-TL: Indonesian Journal of Language Teaching and Linguistics
