    Student thesis: Master, one year


    Writing plays an important role in people's daily communication. But for Chinese university students, writing an English composition constitutes a tough task, in which the use of cohesive devices is one of the major problems. Though cohesion has a lot to do with the quality of a composition, the empirical study of their relationship from the perspective of quantitative research is rarely done.
