Community is a form of the result of human social interaction.
The formation of this community is based on many things and
provides various kinds of impacts in social life, one of these
impacts is the emergence of certain language attributes in a
community and these language attributes can be different from
those in other communities. This also occurs in one of the
largest online communities in Indonesia, Kaskus, where
members of the community have special language attributes in
interactions between members. The language attribute that
appears in this community is a marker, either implicitly or
explicitly, that those who use the language attribute are part of
that community. In this study, the Kaskus online community
has a language attribute in the form of registers used in greeting
and promotion interactions.
