This qualitative article aims to examine the enforcement of the code of ethics and code of conduct for judges in Indonesia by the Judicial Commission as an external supervisor with the Supreme Court as the internal supervisor. The sub-optimal relationship between the two institutions is clear from the high number of reports of violations of the Code of Ethics and the Code of Conduct of Judges and the low rate of implementation of the recommendations of the Judicial Commission in the supervision of judges at the Supreme Court. There is an overlap between internal supervision at the Supreme Court, and the Supreme Court does not consider the Judicial Commission violations. According to the Judicial Commission, violations of the Code of Ethics and Judicial Code of Conduct are violations. As a result, public reports about violations of the judge's code of ethics and the recommendations of the Judicial Commission were ineffective, and breaches of the judges' code of ethics continued. The cause is the Judicial Commission's inefficiency and the tendency of protecting the corps of judges by the Supreme Court. To redress this, it is necessary to assign a single task and authority to the Judicial Commission and amend the Judicial Commission Law to create judges with integrity and dignity.

Bruno Gomes Pereira
Page Numbers : 179-182
DOI : 10.36348/sijll.2021.v04i06.004
Cet ouvrage vise à présenter un panorama théorique de la théorie des voix sociales, études fortement défendues par le théoricien danois Jacob Mey. Notre intention est de dialoguer directement avec d'autres auteurs qui, comme Mey, croient au caractère socioculturel du langage, un aspect fondamental pour comprendre la manière dont se construisent les voix qui cousent l'anatomie d'une société fluide et instable. Nous sommes insérés dans le champ des études Pragmatiques, plus précisément en Sociopragmatique, un terrain fertile en discussions sur les voix. Notre recherche est de type bibliographique. Nous comprenons que les acteurs sociaux se rapportent à travers différentes voix capables de redéfinir les pratiques humaines, étant ainsi un instrument socialement construit.

Language Learning Competency Analysis through Sociolinguistic Studies; A Case Study of Bachelors’ Degree Students in Korean language from Jawaharlal Nehru University, India
Page Numbers : 183-188

Language, like sleep, is not a substance but a process that is constantly evolving and the practicality is known to everyone, yet in its throretical form defies formulations. Sociolinguistic is not a study of facts but the study of ideas about how societal norms are intertwined with our language use. For instance, what it means to be a male or female member of a particular society may influence the terms we use to address each other. Three level of analysis are mainly considered when conceptualizing the context of language and its uses; the play of Phenomena upon the senses, the concepts we can recognize as common to certain groups or classes of these phenomena, thirdly the formal logical system with which these concepts seem to agree. Language is always subject to construction and deconstruction in respect to the environment and culture it gets exposed to. For instance, learning language, say L3 where L1 is the regional language, but is instructed using L2, may determine the outcome of how a language is understood and learnt depending on the sociolinguistic exposure of learners where L1, L2 and L3 may all differ from region to region especially in the context of India, as India is multi-lingual. Environmental exposure plays a vital role in how a certain target language is learnt. It is a fact that as an adult language learner, environmental exposure and cultural proximity play a great deal of how language is studied and also the pace with which target language is acquired/learnt.

A Perspective on the Progress of the Theatre of Saad al-Faraj, with Emphasis on Censorship in Kuwait and the challenged Play Custom is Second Nature
Dr. Ali Ali al-Anezi
Page Numbers : 165-174
DOI : 10.36348/sijll.2021.v04i06.002
This study is an examination of the life and work of the Kuwaiti dramatist Saad al-Faraj (1938-). al-Faraj‟s name is virtually unknown in the West – particularly in the English-speaking West, although he is well known in Arab World. Only one academic study of any significance has appeared in Arabic on this eminent and fascinating dramatist, who was honoured by NCCAL and the Arab Theatre Institute at the end of his life. This study do not attempt to be comprehensive but focus on particular stages of al-Faraj‟s career. This study is, therefore, the only one to attempt to see al-Faraj whole. To do so it combines an account of his life which seeks to comprehend the various forces that shaped his thinking with an analysis of one of his main dramatic work. The study concentrates on the years following the trauma inflicted on the Arab world by the catastrophe of the defeat of June 1967. Al-Faraj‟s career can be divided into two phases: the immature plays of his young manhood; his late period – the „Epic theatre‟, when his Nasrism politics were the main factor shaping his drama. The study places al-Faraj in his historical and sociocultural context and provides a brief background explaining the literary and theatrical traditions of the Arab world that influenced his activity as a dramatist. His late work is then examined in turn and his play Custom is Second Nature is analysed in accordance with the focus of the study. This means given to the late period, but no significant work is neglected. The study aims to trace the trajectory of al-Faraj‟s development using a variety of sources: the plays themselves, al-Faraj‟s own journalism and critical writings, interviews with him, and his close friends and colleagues, in addition to a number of journals, books and articles, some of which contain important interviews with al-Faraj that shed light on his thought and ways of working. Conclusions will be drawn but, more importantly, questions will be raised, and it is hoped that scholars will consider this playwright and his work a subject meriting further research.
