The researcher identifies the types of language functions used by the male characters in the data and describes the context of language functions discovered in the data. The research applied a descriptive qualitative method. This study is classified as discourse analysis because it focuses on communication or interaction analysis. The male characters’ utterances represent the data of the study. The source of this study is a transcript of the “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood”. The researcher used documentation to collect data. The researcher applied Jakobson's theory of language functions to the data and Hymes’ situational context theory to describe the context of the language functions. According to the findings of this study, all types of language functions were found in the data. The referential function with 265 data is the most frequently used language function. In comparison, the poetic function with only 4 data is the least commonly used type of language function. The context of language functions such as setting, participants, ends (purposes), act sequences, key (tone or mood), instrumentalities, norms, and genre on the male characters’ utterances is also described by the researcher into narrative text.
