ABSTRACT
This paper attempts to analyse the call utilized by the street hawkers who sold snacks in Malang, a small town in East Java. The results indicate that their utterances could be classified into five categories. Most of them observed the Gricean maxims, a few flouted them, but none disobeyed them. In general the snack vendors could be considered conforming to the cooperative principle in offering their merchandise to the hearers or the customers.
