Abstract

This study examines the generic structure and cohesive devices in the Final Project Report (FPR) presentation delivered in English by the Accounting students of Polines. Fourteen randomly selected subjects (10% of the third graders’ population) were involved and audio-recorded during their presentation. The recordings were then transcribed and analyzed using a descriptive-interpretative method. The analyses show that the generic structure most presenters used was Greeting and Salutation (GS) – Self Introduction (SI) – Topic Introduction (TI) – Body (B) – Summary (S) – Conclusion (C) in which the Body mostly consists of Background or Object of the Study, Problem Statement, Aims of the Study, Research Method, and Results and Discussion, and the Summary consists of Conclusion and Suggestion. The major cohesive devices employed were conjunctions of Textual, hypotactic and paratactic types, referents of exophoric and endophoric/anaphoric types, and repetition as part of lexical cohesion. The transition of stages was marked mostly by the use of referents and specific lexical items.
