Catering for the linguistic expressions of health condition (including clinical and pathological), the journal publishes conceptual and empirical articles in the area. Submissions may include experimental, review, and theoretical discussion articles, with studies of either quantitative and/or qualitative frameworks. Articles may relate to any area of the intersections between language and health with regard, but not limited, to etiological issues, diagnosis, intervention, and theoretical frameworks.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> CV.

Penyakit ini sering disebut <em>The Silent Killer</em> karena merupakan pembunuh tersembunyi dan menyebabkan berbagai komplikasi terhadap beberapa penyakit lain. Faktor-faktor yang menyebabkan hipertensi pada ibu hamil diantaranya faktor umur, paritas, dan riwayat persalinan yang lalu. Tujuan Penelitian ini adalah untuk mengetahui faktor-faktor yang berhubungan dengan kejadian hipertensi terhadap ibu hamil di wilayah kerja Puskesmas Pekalongan Lampung Timur. Metode penelitian ini menggunakan analitik kuantitatif dengan desain <em>cross sectional</em>. Populasi penelitian sebanyak 168 ibu hamil dengan teknik <em>simple</em> <em>random sampling </em>secara acak dengan cara undian dengan sampel 118 responden. Dari analisa data univariat didapatkan proporsi ibu hamil dengan hipertensi (66%), proporsi usia ibu hamil beresiko (77%), proporsi paritas beresiko (75%), dan riwayat hipertensi (69%). Hasil uji statistik <em>chi square</em> menunjukkan hubungan antara usia ibu hamil dengan kejadian hipertensi dengan (<em>ρ=0,003</em>), hubungan antara paritas ibu hamil dengan kejadian hipertensi (<em>ρ= 0,010</em>), dan hubungan antara riwayat hipertensi pada ibu hamil dengan kejadian hipertensi (<em>ρ = 0,000</em>). Kesimpulan penelitian ini menunjukkan adanya hubungan antara usia, paritas, dan riwayat hipertensi dengan kejadian hipertensi pada ibu hamil dengan hasil uji&nbsp; p <em>value</em> ≤ α (0,05) sehingga Ho ditolak dan Ha diterima.</p> Tiara Rica Dayani Kadek Yuke Widyantari ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2023-04-28 2023-04-28 4 1 1 10 10.37287/jlh.v4i1.1611 Prosodic Features of Short Dialogs in TOEFL ITP Listening Comprehension: Acoustic Phonetic Approach <p>Listening comprehension in Test of English as Foreign Language (TOEFL) has its own challenges, both in terms of listening and the comprehension process. This article explores aspects of prosody in short dialogues used in listening comprehension tests: duration, pitch, and intensities. The method applied in this research was descriptive qualitative with phonetic approach based on Collins and Mess’s Practical Phonetics and Phonology. A recording from ETS official website, consisting of thirty short dialogs were analyzed to perform the durations and pitch variations with the assistance of voice analyzer, Praat, especially for imaging process of pitch contour and measuring duration. Phonetic transcription showed the assimilation and elision processes occurred as the result of connected speech, while pitch variations tended to show more on attitudinal function, grammatical function, and fewer emphases on significant information. The voice actors performed the speech of General American accents naturally; however the nature of conversation itself would not be realized since this section is designed purposively to examine test-takers ability on semantic and pragmatic area. The duration of the speech is displayed as naturally as possible in the context of everyday conversation so that the perception of listeners who are not native speakers assesses it as rapid speech.</p> Donal Fernado Lubis Tri Arie Bowo ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2023-04-28 2023-04-28 4 1 9 18 10.37287/jlh.v4i1.2186
