A. Background of The study
In everyday life, language is a tool to communicate whether spoken or written. We can identify various types of communicative act by which people communicate with each other: making statements, asking questions, giving directives with the aim of getting the hearer to carry out some action, making an offer or promise, thanking or expressing an exclamation.
Asking and stating are basic communicative acts. The result in variety people with different language background and experience using English as their spoken and written language is variety in structure and grammatical sentences, especially questions sentences. The thing asked for or stated may be something linguistic or it may be something non-linguistic. Gelderen state in her book, An Introduction to the Grammar English (2010:1), that speakers of a language know a lot about their languages. For instance, we know about the sounds (phonology), the structure of words (morphology), and the structure of sentences (syntax).
2 Robin (2007) said that sentence structure may ultimately be composed of many parts, but remember that the foundation of each sentence is the subject and the predicate. The subject is a word or a group of words that functions as a noun; the predicate is at least a verb and possibly includes objects and modifiers of the verb.
Gelderen (2010:4) state that knowing about the structure of the sentence, what parts go with other parts, is relevant in many cases. In yes/no questions, the verb is moved to the front of the sentence. This rule is quite complex, however. We cannot simply move any verb to the front, it will cause an ungrammatical sentence and not all verbs move to the front to form questions. Apart from yes/no questions, there are wh- questions, where more information is expected for an answer. In these sentences, the wh-word is fronted as well as the auxiliary did. Speaker of English know that sentences are ambiguous, sentences have a structure, movement occurs in question and verbs are divided into two kind, verbs that move in questions and verbs that do not move.
B. Limitation of The Study
The study will be limited to the pattern of interrogative sentences that the member post from May to June 2013 in OneHallyu online forum, section Celebrity News and Gossip.

F. Definition of The Key Terms
1. Questions Sentences
Swan (1996: xxvii) said that sentence is a group of words that express a statement, command, questions or exclamation. A sentence consists of one or more clauses, and usually has at least one subject and verb. In writing it begins with capital letter and ends with a full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
Oxford learner’s pocket dictionary (2000:351) define that question
(noun) is a sentence or phrase that asks for information. Downing state in English Grammar: A University Course Third Edition (2015:137) that questions typically seek information from the hearer that the speaker does not know. There are two types interrogatives structure in English, yes/no (polar) and wh- (non-polar) the later with using wh-elements.

G. Graduating Paper Organization
The graduating paper is composed into systematically five chapters, and able to clarify as follows. Chapter I, introduction which is dealing with the background of the study, limitation of the study, problem statement, objective of the study, benefit of the study, definition of the key terms, and the paper organization. Chapter II is underlying theory, which covers the term of question sentences and OneHallyu Online Forum. Chapter III provides the descriptions of methodology research. Chapter IV explains the data analysis, which has been collected from OneHallyu online forum. Chapter V is dealing with conclusion and suggestion.
Chapter II describes the theoretical framework that consists of the definition of question sentences, pattern of question sentences, and the definition of OneHallyu Online Forum.
A. QUESTION SENTENCES
1. The Definition of Question Sentences
Downing (2015: 114) said that general types of speech act are very basic; most of the languages have ways of representing them by means of the grammar. These are statements, questions, exclamations and directives. These basic speech acts are encoded in the grammar in the system of clause types or moods, as shown in the diagram below.
8 In interrogative clauses, the finite verb precedes the subject, the rest remaining the same. When no operator is already available in the clause, a form of do (do, does, did) is brought in as a dummy operator. The functions of the operators that interest us here are, first, that they signal by position that the clause is interrogative, and second, they carry polarity, that is, they are either positive or negative. This positive–negative contrast is an essential semantic feature associated with finiteness. In order to be affirmed or denied, a proposition has to be either positive or negative.
Oxford learner’s pocket dictionary (2000:351) define that question (noun) is a sentence or phrase that asks for information. Downing state in her book English Grammar: A University Course Third Edition (2015:137) that questions typically seek information from the hearer that the speaker does not know.
Merriam Webster online dictionary (2016) describe that question (noun) is an interrogative sentence or clause often used to test knowledge. Cambridge Online dictionary define that question is anything we write or say which requires a response. In writing, questions are usually followed by a question mark.
9 question is being reported, it ends with period rather than question mark. (Jean & Emily, 2001: 89-90)
Downing (2015:120) state that interrogative clauses typically occur in interpersonal situations and their direct speech-act function is to ask for information. There are two main types of interrogative, the yes/no type and the wh-type.
2. Structure of Question Sentences
a) Yes/No Question
Azhar define in her book (2003:121) that a yes/no questions is a
questions that can be answered by “yes” or “no” or their equivalent. In
the yes/no type it is only the polarity that is in question. The speaker asks for confirmation or denial of the clause content, to be expressed by yes or no. (Angela Downing, 2015:120)
Figure 2.2 Positive Pattern
Figure 2.3 Negative Pattern
In short, auxiliary verb followed by the subject then verb is the basic pattern for yes/no question sentence. For negative pattern, we add not after the auxiliary verb.
Auxiliary Verb/Modal + Not + S + Verb
Table 2.1 Yes/No Questions examples
b) Information (wh-) Question
Azhar defines in her book (2003:123), information questions are question that asks for information by using questions words: where, negative pattern, it use auxiliary verb followed by not.

Second is if the sentence in question is the object, auxiliary be is required. For negative pattern, add not after the auxiliary verb.

B. OneHallyu Online Forum
Figure 2.6. : OneHallyu front page
Today, it is near impossible to find a sole provider of information for all facets of the Asian entertainment industry. There are often too many news outlets, yet no consolidated source; too many speculations, yet no solid discussion. OneHallyu solves all these issues simultaneously: A steady stream of information for fans provided by fans. Founded upon the value of cohesiveness, they strive to be the sole provider in an oft-divided entertainment industry for newer or older fans.
Often new fans become lost within a fandom, unable to express his or
her voice. Or, it’s difficult to express their love for multiple groups, while

The founder believes, community is best seen when they stand firm as one. All things must come to an end, yet all ends have vibrant new beginnings. Still, the thing that remains consistent through all this is that the fans have one
other. The “O” in their logo is symbolic of the wholeness formed when each
new beginning is founded upon another’s end. When it all comes together, we see the perfectness in the middle that is only achieved by staying strong and united, regardless of beginning or end.
The beauty of the Hallyu movement is that what makes the fans come together from all ends of the world to meet in the middle with a common interest. The Hallyu movement not only ushered in a new era of Asian Entertainment for all those interested, but also brought together like-minded individuals to celebrate and enthusiastically discuss this musical genre. Hallyu has since expanded outward to include all types of music from Asia, including
Japanese, Chinese, and other Asian entertainment media. The “H” in their logo
16 With the members that come from all over the world and the stream of information that always added everyday, for easier use of this forum, they divide it to six sections: neighborhood, Korean entertainment, Japanese entertainment, Chinese entertainment, OneHallyu release and other.

There is three forums in OneHallyu release section, OneHallyu media that release weekly OneHallyu (WOH) videos and their subbing videos, OneHallyu lyrics that post the song lyrics and the translation, and OneHallyu
general translation that release the translation from article, interview or other.

The type of this research is descriptive qualitative research. Quoting what Moleong (2008:6) states in his book, qualitative research is a research to comprehend phenomena of what is happen on the research subject holistically and by description in words and language form, in a certain natural context and use several scientific methods.
Kothari (2004:2) said descriptive research includes surveys and fact-finding enquiries of different kinds. The major purpose of descriptive research is description of the state of affairs as it exists at present. The methods of research utilized in descriptive research are survey methods of all kinds, including comparative and correlational methods.
21 where the aim is to discover the underlying motives of human behavior. Through such research, we can analyze the various factors which motivate people to behave in a particular manner or which make people like or dislike a particular thing.
Qualitative approach to research is concerned with subjective assessment of attitudes, opinions and behavior. Research in such a situation is a function of researcher’s insights and impressions. Generally, the techniques of focus group interviews, projective techniques and depth interviews are used.
Johnson said (2007: 2) qualitative research relies primarily on the collection of qualitative data, such as words, images or categories. “ Wide-angle” and “deep-angle” lens, examining the breadth and depth of phenomena to learn more about them.
B. Object of The Research
C. Type of The Data
According to Kothari (2004:95) there are two types of data, primary and secondary. The primary data are those that are collected afresh and for the first time, and thus happen to be original in character. The secondary data, on the other hand, are those which have already been collected by someone else and which have already been passed through the statistical process. In this research, the writer use primary data.
D. Method of The Data Collection
According to Kothari (2004:96) researcher collect primary data during the course of doing experiments in an experimental research but in case the researcher do research of the descriptive type and perform surveys, then the researcher can obtain primary data either through observation or through direct communication with respondents in one form or another or through personal interviews.
There are several methods of collecting primary data, particularly in surveys and descriptive researches. Important ones are observation method, interview method, through questionnaires, through schedules, and other methods.
1. Observation Method
23 when it serves a formulated research purpose, is systematically planned and recorded and is subjected to checks and controls on validity and reliability. Under the observation method, the information is sought by way of investigator’s own direct observation without asking from the respondent.
According to Cohen (2007:396) observation as a research process is that it offers an investigator the opportunity to gather
‘live’ data from naturally occurring social situations. In this way, the
researcher can look directly at what is taking place in situ rather than relying on second-hand accounts.
According to Johnson (2007:10) in observation, the researcher observes participants in natural and/or structured environments. It can be carried out in two types of environments, laboratory observation, which is done in a lab set up by the
researcher, and naturalistic observation, which is done in real-world settings.
There are two important forms of observation: quantitative observation and qualitative observation.
a) Quantitative Observation
Quantitative observation involves standardization procedures, and it produces quantitative data.
24 - What is observed.
- When the observations are to take place. - Where the observations are to take place. - How the observations are to take place.
2) Standardized instruments 3) Sampling procedures b) Qualitative Observation
Qualitative observation is exploratory and open- ended, and the researcher takes extensive field notes. The qualitative observer may take on four different roles that make up a continuum:
1) Complete participant (i.e., becoming a full member of the group and not informing the participants that you are studying them).
2) Participant-as-Observer (i.e., spending extensive time "inside" and informing the participants that you are studying them).
3) Observer-as-Participant (i.e., spending a limited amount of time "inside" and informing them that you are studying them).
25 In this research, the observation carried out in natural observations and in the form of qualitative observation. The writer become a complete participant in OneHallyu community. The content analysis after the printed contents of Celebrity News and Gossip forum in OneHallyu community is in simple level, according to content-analysis method by Kothari.
E. Method of Data Analysis
According to Cohen (2007:461) qualitative data analysis involves organizing, accounting for and explaining the data; in short, making sense
of data in terms of the participants’ definitions of the situation, noting
patterns, themes, categories and regularities. A grounded theory and content analysis will proceed through a systematic series of analyses, including coding and categorization, until theory emerges that explains the phenomena being studied or which can be used for predictive purposes.
According to Cohen (2007:475) content analysis simply defines the process of summarizing and reporting written data – the main contents of data and their messages. It defines a strict and systematic set of procedures for the rigorous analysis, examination and verification of the contents of written data (Flick 1998: 192; Mayring 2004:266).
26 categories, and then counts and logs the occurrences of words, codes and categories. From here, statistical analysis and quantitative methods are applied, leading to an interpretation of the results. Put simply, content analysis involves coding, categorizing (creating meaningful categories into which the units of analysis – words, phrases, sentences etc. – can be placed), comparing (categories and making links between them), and concluding – drawing theoretical conclusions from the text. The whole process of content analysis can follow eleven steps.
In this research, the writer use content analysis to analyze the collected data. The following steps are below:
1. The writer extract the sentence that already been collect by taken picture of each pages that contain interrogative sentence that the member posting.
2. There are two category of interrogative sentence that the writer intend to analyze, the writer use code A and B for each category that have been found. Then the writer divided the data according to the category of interrogative sentence.
27 becomes the determiner of the research. The key point in this method is the part language itself, like word, syntactic function, clause, etc. The writer used Agih method (Distributional method) to analyze the structure of interrogative sentence. The writer use teknik balik to analyze the sentence, because according to Sudaryanto (2015:91) teknik balik is the word movement process that does not change the original information from the sentence.
In this chapter, the writer presents the data collections that will be described and the result of the data analysis.
A. Data Presentasion
In this research, from May 2013 to June 2013 the writer found 74 patterns of question sentences used by the members of OneHallyu. The writer extract the sentence that already been collect by taken picture of each pages that contain interrogative sentence that the member posting.
There are two category of interrogative sentence that the writer intend to analyze, the writer use code A and B for each category that have been found. Then the writer divided the data according to the category of interrogative sentence. There are 33 pattern of yes/no question and 41 patterns of information questions. The data found in this research are as follows:

Auxiliary verb followed by the subject then verb is the basic pattern for yes/no question sentence. For negative pattern, we add not after the auxiliary verb. In the yes/no type it is only the polarity that is in question. The speaker asks for confirmation or denial of the clause content, to be expressed by yes or no. (Angela Downing, 2015:120) a.
