Based on background of the study, the author (myself) trying to identify the figurative language in the Jakarta Post. The research done using descriptive qualitative design by checking the news in Jakarta post and identify the Figurative Language.
Research design describe the opening and classified general ways to analyze the data. now, we need to create Subject of the study which contain Population and sample (because the research design above is Descriptive Qualitative) like as below:
Subject of the Study
Population is a complete sample of a something selected to represent the full or complete group. It does only group of person or individual having quality or characteristics in common (Hadi. 1982:220). What is mean by population according to him, it does only refer to person or human beings, but it can also refer to animals or things. In this study, the population is the Jakarta Post.
Population is needed when we need to research a mass data. sample describe the exact selected data from population it self. sample provide the researcher with the selected data to analyze.
Sample is part of population that present all the population and it must be equal in characteristic at all subject (Ary, 1979:129). A sample is a part of population from which the research data are drawn.the sample is hoped to present which the Population since the generalization of research result is for the population.
In this research, the research takes cluster sampling. It is just 4 news from thousands of news.
Here are the chosen sample:
ü Tobacco farmers rally against `extinction’

Now, all we need to do is explaining Research Procedure from the data we have collected. we should explain what procedure used to collect the data and the procedure to analysis the data. we must clearly explained so the reader will know exactly if our research is fully eligible, formal, and as the standard or not.
Research Procedure of Collecting the Data and Data Analysis.
