These data of research were collected by recording the conversation in Karonese funeral and were analyzed based on the Systemic Functional Linguistics theory. Based on the result of research, it was found that the occurring conversation was caused by the influence of Karonese culture in which the speaker could interact by projecting him/herself as the dead person. Therefore, there were three kinds of conversation structures; they were the conversation structure occurring universally, the conversation structure of development, which was the development from universal conversation structure and unusual conversation structure, which was the conversation structure that was not same with universal conversation structure.
