Abstract

Discourse analysis involves analyzing the language being used. This research investigates the effect of reading interest and achievement motivation on students’ discourse analysis competence. To obtain the required data, questionnaires on reading interest and achievement motivation, and discourse analysis were used to test the aspects of cohesion and coherence and were administered to a group of 60 students of the English language study program at Bina Darma University in Palembang. Students’ reading interest and achievement motivation are some of the most crucial issues in the field of education. To analyze the data, path analysis was used and the results showed a positive direct effect on (1) reading interest of students’ discourse analysis competence with a coefficient value 0.253, and (2) achievement motivation on students’ discourse analysis competence with a coefficient value 0.284. The magnitude of the direct effects of reading interest and achievement motivation on students’ discourse analysis was 44.6%.
