Cohesion

Target Students and Background:

IECP Level 2 Students.

Objectives:

Students will be able to identify how cohesion is achieved in the texts and to apply what they’ve learned to their own writing.


Cohesion

what is cohesion?


Cohesion

Definition

Cohesion is the link to hold sentences, ideas and details together clearly and smoothly in order to help readers to interpret ideas in the way the writer want them to understand.

In addition, to achieve a consistent relationshipamong text.

cohesive devices link your sentences and paragraphs together smoothly so that there are no abrupt jumps or breaks between ideas.


Cohesion

How to achieve cohesion in writing?


Cohesion

Repetition

In sentence B (the second of any two sentences),

repeat a word from sentence A.

Repetition is used to focus your ideas,to keep your

reader on track and to reinforce information.

e.g. I’m nobody. Are you nobody, too?


Cohesion

Parallelism

Parallelism is the oldestbut probably the most elegant

method of creating cohesion.It works to repeat a word or a

sentence structure.

Thesimilar ideas should be written in similar grammatical

form.

Using parallelism makes writing more sophisticated,

academic and cohesive organized.

e.g. Relax more, sleep deeper, and dream better.


Cohesion

Synonym

Synonym is another strategy to develop cohesionif direct repetition is too obvious.

Using the words that have essentially the same meaning is helping to make your language variable as well as helping the readers to stay focused on the idea being discussed.

e.g. Please search online. You will find more

information.


Cohesion

Pronouns

Pronouns are used to refer back to the information mentioned previously.Usually used pronouns including this, that, these, those, he, she, it, they, and we.

Pronouns helps making clear connections in writing and establishing cohesion.

It serves as substitutes for nouns and therefore avoid needless repetition.

e.g. Mary loves Titanic. She enjoys watching romantic

movies so much.
