Abstract


This study analyzes the use of erotic, vernacular and figurative languages in D.H. Lawrenre’s Lady Chatterley’s Lover. As part of stylistic, this study focuses to find out how Lawrence used the erotic, vernacular and figurative language as the distinctive expression in the text, and to find out the purposes and the effects of such expressions. It is found out that the erotic language in this novel can be seen from the usage of taboos, direct, and the use of concrete and abstract nouns. It is also found out that he used some conceptual metaphors and irony to describe the eroticism of the novel.
