Improving Cohesion in L2 Writing: A Three-Strand Approach to Building Lexical Cohesion
Johnson, Mark
English Teaching Forum, v55 n4 p2-13 2017
This article presents a three-strand approach to help L2 writers in English as a foreign language (EFL) and English as a second language (ESL) instructional contexts achieve greater cohesion in their written work. The approach focuses on (1) the analysis of authentic texts, (2) the development of productive vocabulary, and (3) information structure and vocabulary development as part of the revision process.
