Developing an argument - Information flow and cohesion

A successful Discussion is an argument about what your results mean. To make your Discussion an argument you need to use language structures to help link your ideas together to build up your argument in a logical way.

Language Structures for linking your ideas together.
They are:

  1. Information flow or the linking of information between sentences depending on what information you put in sentence Themes (beginnings) and sentence News (endings)
    (See Help with writing Introduction for more explanation about Theme and New)
  2. Cohesion or using conjunctions, reference words and vocabulary to link your ideas together.
