Communication between people with others through language can be delivered in two ways, spoken language and written language. One form of written language that is useful to convey knowledge to the people is discourse. Written discourse can be formed like a thesis. Thesis is a scientific writing based on the student’s research. One of the important parts of thesis is abstract. Abstract is the summary of the thesis. In a discourse, there are many sentences which have to be united and hang together. The discourse is able to have good unity in connecting between sentences with the help of cohesive devices.
