The Title of this paper is English Used by Art Shop Attendants in Kuta Area. I am interested in investigating this topic since I want to know about the English used in real life by certain people. The analysis concerns with English functions and expressions that are used by art shop attendants and tourist. In analyzing those English functions and expressions, this paper applied the theory of English functions taken from the book Function in English by John Blundell (1987) as the main theory and the supporting theory was taken from the book of Leo Jones in his book entitled Function of Language (1977) . Beside the other theories about, some theories that are considered relevant to the topic were also use in this paper. In collecting the data, I used field research technique by applying the method of recording and note taking. The data collected then analyzed based on the scope of discussion. Then the data they analyzed by according to their functions and formality of the expressions used by the art shop attendants. After all the data analyzed, I can make some conclusions such as there are eight language functions appears in their conversation with the tourists. The eight functions are: greeting, inviting, giving information, offering something, refusing, asking quantity, thanking and saying goodbye. The art shop attendants used the English function in informal expression although there were some art shop attendants used the formal expressions in using the English functions. Most of them used ungrammatical sentences to express the English functions but their purpose can be understood by the tourists when they serve the tourists in a friendly and polite manner.
