Cohesion: Cohesion means the Grammatical and lexical relation that makes the relationship within a test or sentence. It is achieved when writers connect their organized parts with satisfactorily clear and plentiful signals, by using the words ‘firstly’, ‘secondly’, ‘finally,’ ‘thus,’ ‘however, on the other hand, in summary etc. to make the development of their topic comprehensible. It is also used to lead the reader safely along the initial lines of their arguments. It can be defined as the links that hold a text together and give its meaning. It is related to the broader concept of coherence. 

   There are two main types of cohesion; one is Grammatical, and another is lexical, Grammatical refers to the structural content, and lexical refers to the language content of the piece. A cohesive text may be created in different ways. There are five general categories of cohesive devices that create coherence in texts. The devices are reference, ellipsis, substitution, lexical cohesion and conjunction

      Oh this is highly satriical. One cant but somtimes feel pitiful for infants. I mean this young ones vacate a place of bliss only to join stuggling mortals who have perfected how to suffer, how to smile and how to suffer and smile. Baby girl i advise that you dont become too scared about all daddy said though its the absolute truth. Baby you will have to be strong and quickly join the league of those who will not sleep untill change comes.

    Everything mentioned here I told both of my kids after they were develired. Its a feeling of helplessness when u look into ur kids eyes and have nothing to say when she asks you mum,why is there no light and in canada they have light all the time? How do you tell a child that she can’t trust the police when there is an emergency. Hmmmmmn
