AbstractThis study describes the implementation of Relevance Theory to convey the implicatures of Materâ€™s utterances in Cars 2 movie. Mater is the main character of Cars 2 movie whose utterances frequently causes misunderstanding between Mater and other characters in the movie. Other characters in Cars 2movie who misunderstand Materâ€™s utterances are Lightning McQueen, Francesco Bernoulli, Holley Shiftwell, Finn McMissile, and Materâ€™s voice-activated computer. In analyzing the implicatures of Materâ€™s utterances which are misunderstand by other characters in Cars 2 movie, the writer considers the contextual effect of Materâ€™s utterances toward hearerâ€™s existing assumption. The implicatures of Materâ€™s utterances can be conveyed from the deduction of its contextual effect.
