This study discusses the linguistic landscape found in 4 train stations in Surabaya. The researcher used Spolsky and Cooper's theory to examine the function of the sign. The purpose of this study is to inform readers about the linguistic landscape and understand the type and function of the signs. The two points discussed in this study are 1). What types of languages occur on signs in train stations in Surabaya? 2). What are the functions of the sign shown in the Surabaya train station? This study uses qualitative methods to analyze the type and function of the sign at 4 Surabaya train stations. The researcher collected the data by capturing the photo of the sign in the form of banners, posters, or billboards in 4 Surabaya train stations. Then, the researcher identified, described, explained, and concluded the data to find the types of signs and the functions of the signs. The researcher found three types of language signs that are: 28 monolingual signs (55%), 22 bilingual signs (43%), and 1 multilingual sign (2%) out of a total of 51 signs.
