Linking devices: myths debunked
One of the key features of a well-written academic text is coherence and cohesion. But what makes a text coherent? Linking words certainly play an important role. The texts may seem illogical and unclear to the reader if linking devices are missing or, on the contrary, used in such abundance that the original idea just gets lost
Many authors face this problem and that’s why the workshop by the AWC trainer Yulia Chanturidze was really useful for all the participants. During the workshop, the participants read and analyzed texts, paying particular attention to the linking words, and then rewrote them to make the narrative logical and authentic.
The participants’ feedback:
“I liked the amount of individual work. The speaker demonstrates strong expertise, and Yulia's delivery is very engaging.”
“I enjoyed that we’ve discussed those practical things that are essential while preparing written materials.”
“The material was really well-prepared, evidence provided, and we’ve done various tasks.”
We would like to say thank you to Yulia for her recommendations and useful tasks.
