Text linguistics is a discipline that deals with the text and examines the different connections of a sentence within itself and with other sentences. In addition, text linguistics argues that the sentence is not sufficiently alone meaningful in a narrative and that it completes its meaning as a result of some connections with other sentences. Because the text is not just a consecutive sequence of sentences. The text gives different meanings as a whole when all the sentences are considered. According to text linguistics, it is known that a correct and effective text should have cohesion, coherence, acceptability, intentionality, informativity, situationality and intertextuality. Of these criteria, cohesion and coherence are two very important elements for the text. Cohesion, is all of the language-related features that establish in-text relationships that make a text of a writing; is to explain basic semantic relationships through any piece of writing or speech that can function as text. Coherence is the meaning and logic relation between words when creating a text; is the logical link in the text. Cohesion is related to the structure of a text or grammatical, coherence its logic or meaning.
