This study aims to analyze the explicature process in utterances of the characters in Maleficent movie 2014 using the theory of explicature proposed by Huang. This study focuses on how explicature process applied to clarify the unclear utterance in the movie. This study employed a descriptive qualitative approach to analyze data by explaining the findings. Meanwhile, the data of this study were unclear utterances contained in the movie. The data were collected by first download the film, and the transcript from the internet then highlighted the unclear utterance. After that, the writer gave varying colors to the unclear utterance to distinguish each process that would be applied. The data then analyzed by determining the missing constituent and recognizing the characteristics of the explicature process. The analysis continued by applying the appropriate explicature process to the unclear utterance. Finally, the writer concluded the findings. The results of this study show that all types of explicature processes (disambiguation, reference resolution, saturation, free enrichment, and ad hoc concept) are applied by the writer to clarify the unclear utterance in the movie. Free enrichment dominates the findings, saturation process in the second position, disambiguation in the third position, reference resolution in the fourth position, and the last position is ad hoc concept. It can be concluded that a lot of unclear utterances found in the movie need to be specified through the free enrichment process to gain the proper meaning. Moreover, the rest of the data were analyzed through saturation process to give further information, disambiguation to clarify the ambiguous meaning, reference resolution to reveal hidden point, and ad hoc to narrowing the general meaning or broadening the specific meaning.
