Title: A linguistic analysis of some ESP texts used in Iranian universities with special focus on cohesion in texts of business and commerce.
Author: Fazelimanie, Ayatollah
Issue Date: 2007
School/Discipline: School of Humanities : Linguistics
Abstract: "This study attempts primarily to bring together some of the existing literature on text coherence, cohesion, and thematic structure and the influence of these text characteristics on reading comprehension and EAP material preparation, particularly in an EFL/ESL context. The textual features of coherence, cohesion and comprehensibility are of primary concern... The results of the analysis suggest that thematic elements and cohesive devices, which act as signposts in directing the readers’ attention in the meaning making process, are to be taken into account in teaching and testing reading and writing." -- From abstract.
