Numbers of researchers have done the research in field of Positive Politeness Strategies. In doing analysis of Positive Politeness Strategies, generally, researchers refer to the theory triggered by Brown and Levinson. It contains fifteen strategies which were divided into three groups; claiming common ground, conveying cooperation, and fulfilling hearer’s wants.Furthermore, it is generally accepted that the use of positive politeness strategies is influenced by two factors, payoff and circumstances. Circumstances itself consists of distance, power, and risk.
In doing this research, the researcher referred to two previous researches. The first was done by Norra which analyzed politeness strategies found in “Her” movie. However, she only analyzed the relation between distance and the choice of strategy, whereas there are three factors in the aspect of circumstances. Another research was by Karyasuta. This research focused to look for kinds of positive politeness strategies applied by characters in the “Fury” movie. From the gap of the previous researches, this research is conducted to analyze the relation between strategy choosing and distance, power, and risk. The researcher also focused in the main character to make the result deeper.This research is conducted by analyzing the transcript and matching it with the scene of the movie. The researcher found that the main character in this movie only applied 11 out of 15 strategies proposed by Brown and Levinson. Furthermore, the factors of strategy choosing could be changed although the subject is facing the same interlocutors. Other finding shows that a case can be the factor of two different strategies in almost the same time. Finally, the researcher hopes that the results of this research can be useful for development of science in Politeness Strategies, especially on Positive Politeness Strategies, and help the reader to explore more about Politeness Strategies.
