Abstract

Abstract is very important in thesis and other scholar articles. Accuracy in abstract is usually very important to get readers’ attention whether they want to read the research or not so. It should be coherent so that it is easy to read. The use of cohesive devices may have contribution in maintaining the sentence coherent. The aim of this study is to find out what types of cohesive devices used by English Department students of Universitas Airlangga. It uses types of cohesion proposed by Halliday and Hasan (1976). The writer uses 22 theses’ abstracts written in 2014 and have grade A and AB. The result shows several main findings. First, the writer found that grammatical cohesion is used more correctly than lexical cohesion with total number of occurrences is 873 and lexical cohesion 35. The order types of cohesive devices from the most to the least used is as follows: reference, conjunction, collocation, repetition, and substitution. Other cohesive devices including nominal substitution, nominal ellipsis, verbal ellipsis, clausal ellipsis, synonym, antonym, meronym, hyponymy/hyperonymy are not found in any abstracts. Second, collocation is used more incorrectly than demonstrative and comparative reference, and temporal conjunction. Third, the correctly used cohesive devices types are greater than the incorrectly one. The writer argues that the students’ abstracts are still coherent although some students still made little mistakes in some abstracts.
