FORENSIC ANALYSIS IN THE WILL OF THE SUICIDAL BOMBER
There are many suicide letters that can be found in various online media. The letter was allegedly written by the suicidal bomber in front of the Makassar Cathedral Church gate. The purposes of this study are to prove the authenticity of the wills of suicidal bomber, determine the emotional tone and find out the motive. The LIWC (Linguistics Inquiry and Word Count) Program will be easier to determine the authenticity of the letter and emotional tone. The motive will be analyzed by using forensic semantics. According to McMenamin in Asfar (2020), forensic semantics is a science that interprets words, phrases, sentences, texts, ambiguities in texts and laws, and interpretations of meanings in oral discourse. The research method is descriptive qualitative because the researcher describes the findings obtained from the linguistic phenomenon (suicide letter) used by the language user in a society. From the LIWC analysis, it can be concluded that the suicidal bomber's will is considered fake and has positive tone. The motive is because the suicidal thinks of his mother's debt in a bank that has usury.
