d. The Use of Lexical Cohesion
There is one phenomenon of lexical cohesion. It can be seen from the application of collocation as described in sentence 2. The sentence says:
Initially, a weather was very “hot”. In the sentence, there is a cohesive chain or cohesive tie between the word a weather which should have been written the
weather and the word hot. This cohesive tie is similar to the relation between patient and sick or patient and doctor. This phenomenon is generally called
collocation. 4.1.15. The Use of Cohesive Devices in Text 8
Text 8 1 I had a friend named Jaka. 2 He lived in Panjaitan Street. 3 He was my
friend when we were at elementary school. 4 Usually, after praying ashar, we “played” “football” together in the square. 5 At Junior High School, we enroll at
different school. 6 I was at SLTP I and he was at SLTP II. 7 And finally, we studied at different “school”. 8 Someday, I “felt” “bored” with my activities and
I realized that I had not met him for one year. 9 On Sunday morning, I decided to go there. 10 When I arrived at his house, I felt the things around the “house”
had been changed. 11 Then, I opened the gate and walked to his “house”. 12 I knocked the door, suddenly an old man opened the “door”. 13 I was confused,
because I had not met him before.14 Then, I asked him. 15 Was it Jaka’s house? 16 He answered “yes”, sit down please. 17 An old man entered to call
my friend. 18 Then, he came with a child. 19 We were looking at each other. 20 Suddenly, an old man said, this was Jaka my son. 21 I hesitated and
realized that I had looked for the wrong person. 22 His father explained to me
that your friend had moved since six months ago. 23 It happened his name of his
son same as my friend.
a. The Use of Reference Pronominal
There are four types of pronominal in the text. They are he, him, his, and it. The pronouns he, him, and his have the same reference anaphoric. They refer
to the same item, i.e. the word Jaka in sentence 1. Yet, they have different function. He and him functions as a head-determinative, while his functions as
deictic-possessive. Regarding it in sentence 15, it refers cataphorically to the word Jaka’s house. And it in the last sentence refers to the immediate context of
situation cataphoric reference.
b. The Use of Reference Demonstrative
