Abstract

Adding cues such as connectives and word overlap to text increases cohesion, and in turn, text ease. In this study, Russian students (ages 11-12; n = 65) read either a low cohesion (i.e., original version) or high cohesion (i.e., modified) informational text. Replicating prior studies conducted in English, the students who read the high cohesion form of the Russian text recalled more propositions from the text than those who had read the low cohesion form.

Keyphrases: cohesion, expository text, Recall
