Irwin, Judith Westphal
Topics in Language Disorders, v8 n3 p14-23 Jun 1988
Linguistic cohesion involves the semantic and syntactic relationships that link sentences together. Research on linguistic cohesion is related to readability and to developmental and ability-level issues in reading/writing. Instructional strategies for low-ability readers/writers include predicting comprehension problems through cohesion analysis and teaching cohesion and general comprehension skills. (JDD)
