This research is intended to describe the moral values based on the protagonist of the novel Jane Eyrewritten by Charlotte Brontë. The objectives of this research are to describe the moral values, referring to a person who is determined to follow a meaningful life patiently following moral values in his life without the fear of getting judged and hence standing out in the crowd. The researcher uses a descriptive qualitative method in this research applying content analysis proposed by Sugiyono (2017). The theory applied in this research is adopted from Hurlock (1997). The primary data were derived from a document or record containing first hand information or original data on the topic. The data were collected from libraries and therefore this research also applied library research.The findings indicate that the protagonist could practice the three kinds of moral values; namely patience, sincerity and responsibility,which may also be followed by anyone.

This study focuses on one of the most important aspects of language change which is syntactic change. This has been done by examining two literary works belonging to two different centuries. The first one is a nineteenth century novel Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë , and the second is a twentieth century novel Lucky Jim by Kingsley Amis. The study adopted a descriptive and analytical methodology, i.e, content analysis, of two texts to identify diachronic change in syntax between these two novels. The researcher used selected dialogues by characters in the two novels as data (by randomization process) to achieve the objectives of the study. The findings obtained show that there are changes in some grammatical structures and word orders use. Most of these changes are innovative, i.e, coming into use like for example, the expression has got which is used as semimodal, idioms and phrasal verbs, and the structure of the present perfect progressive. All these changes, as well as other ones, occurred in Lucky Jimprocess) to achieve the objectives of the study.

All these changes, as well as other ones, occurred in Lucky Jim, but not inJane Eyre. Another kind of change resulted in some structures getting out of use whichare used in Jane Eyre, but not or are used in Jane Eyre, but not or are reduced in Lucky Jim. For example the use of the auxiliary verb is instead of have with an intransitive verb to express present perfect, and some constructions are used mostly in the sample of Jane Eyre, but are reduced so much in the sample of Lucky Jim like ( must +be+ v. infinitive).
