The way in which the various parts of a text, such as the ideas and sentences, are linked together. This can be achieved in many ways, for example, by using lexical chains (words with linked meanings placed throughout the text), by using pronouns that refer back to a noun used earlier, by omitting unneeded words that the reader can supply from the context (ellipsis), or by using verb tenses to remind the reader that the action continues to be in the past.
