Abstract

Cohesion is part of the system of a language. Cohesion occurs where the interpretation of some elements in the discourse dependent on that one of another. Cohesion is an important aspect of discourse analysis as it creates coherence. Lexical cohesion is the way to know how the relationship from one word to another word in the text and lexical cohesion gives the most substantive contribution to the text. By doing this research it is expected to understand and to know the relationship of the word and phrase in the text ‘especially’ the text of the story’s text. To conduct this research the researcher used a descriptive qualitative method, because the data were in the form of words, phrases, and sentences. In this study, the researcher collected the data mainly from the 5 short stories; “One Night with a Maid”, ”A Passionate-Night Kissing”, “ True Love”, “Bad Holiday”, and “A Bowl of Water” by Sukur . In collecting the data, the following activities were done: 1.Reading the short stories. 2.Understanding the text communicatively. 3.Finding the types of lexical cohesion devices in short story. 4.Coding and numbering the types of lexical cohesion in short story. The result of this research showed that six major types of lexical cohesion namely, repetition, synonymy, antonym, metonymy, hyponymy, and collocation. The researcher found that the repetition was the dominant one in selecting short stories “One Night with a Maid” with the percentage of using were repetition (52,94%), occupied the largest percentage of use, then followed by collocation (17,65%), synonymy (11,77%), antonym, metonymy, and hyponymy, had the same percentage (5,88%). Lexical cohesion does not deal with grammatical and semantic connections but with connections based on the words used (Renkema,1993:39). By using lexical cohesion, the sentences have relation each other and the words are not monotonous to read.
