Is Text Cohesion a Precursor to Reading Success?
Salmani-Nodoushan, Mohammad Ali
Journal of Educational Technology, v3 n4 p88-92 Jan-Mar 2007
This paper underscores the effect of text cohesion on EFL reading comprehension. 160 EFL (n = 80) and non-EFL (n = 80) university students took two versions of a cloze test based on a passage of 750 words length one developed with every nth word deletion and the other with cohesive word deletion. The results of analyses of variance indicated that text cohesion positively affected text comprehension. Pedagogical implications of the study are discussed.
