The result of the research shows that all lexical cohesion types, repetition, synonymy, antonymy, meronymy, hyponymy and collocation, are found in the text. Both cohesive devices; lexical and grammatical, have a powerful role in giving the text texture. To Halliday, ‘lexical cohesion comes about through the selection of [lexical] items that are related in some way to those that have gone before’ (p. 310, 330).             A text is not usually defined by size.
