Discourse Strategies of Competent Communicators: Selected Cohesive and Linguistic Devices.
Ellis, Donald G.; And Others
Research on Language and Social Interaction, v27 n2 p145-70 1994

It demonstrates that the cohesive strategies exhibit differences attributable to the cognitive models that speakers use to hold information "in focus" and thereby establish meaning.
