A Comparative Approach on Reference as an Important Element of Cohesion in English and Albanian Language

Lutfije Çota

Abstract


The article deals with the phenomenon of “Reference” as an element of cohesion in English and Albanian language. It aims at giving the concepts and classifications of various linguists as well as our modest thought on referential elements. Cohesive elements have been considered a rich resourse of study by different linguists. A comparative study of them in both languages has resulted in finding the similarities and most importantly in finding differences between them.This work supports the idea that cohesion is important to help readers process text and to produce good writing.The semantic relation set up within a sentence has the consequence that when it crosses a sentence boundary it has the effect of making the two sentences cohere with one another.This is the most usual pattern in the case of reference. The main focus will be put on the property, form and grammar of reference, the frequency of referential items across different registers.
Keywords: Cohesion, reference, interpretation, properties, forms, types, register, frequency.
