Abstract

The purpose of this study is (1) to explain the use of grammatical cohesion in the aspects of reference, substitution, ellipse, and inner conjunction; (2) explain the quality of the use of grammatical cohesion markers in the Singgalang newspaper. The object of this research is the Singgalang newspaper with a total sample of 20 Singgalang newspapers. Samples were taken randomly from Singgalang newspapers in 2018 and 2019. The methods and techniques of data collection are language methods. The technique used is the library method by dividing the discourse into several sentences to be grouped and analyzed based on the cohesion aspects, then proceed with the basic tapping technique followed by the note-taking technique. The results showed that out of 212 paragraphs with 602 pairs of sentences with grammatical cohesion, there were markers of grammatical cohesion from the dominant to the least used, namely (1) reference (54.82%), (2) conjunction (32.89%) , (3) ellipsis (5.81%), and (4) substitution (3.65%). From the research data, there are 48.00% accuracy in using markers of grammatical cohesion and 52.00% inaccuracies in the use of markers of grammatical cohesion.
