The writer only analyzed the Javanese taboo words that were spoken by Pak Darto to describe the analysis on types and purposes of taboo words. In analyzing the type of Javanese taboo words, the writer used Wardhaugh’s (2006) theory, while for analyzing the purposes of Javanese taboo words, the writer used Liedlich’s (1973) theory.From the result of analysis, the writer found 10 utterances containing Javanese taboo words by Pak Darto. The writer found that Pak Darto used 5 types of taboo words to express his feelings, they are one’s mother in law, bodily function/human genitals term, death, excretion and creating game/animal. Furthermore, Pak Darto only had 4 purposes in using the taboo words, namely to discredit, to provoke violent confrontation, to an endearment and to provide catharsis.The writer suggests English Department students to conduct the research on taboo language using other theories such as Hughes’s or Holmes’s theory.
