Abstract

English writing ability is badly needed by professionals and university students, to facilitate their study and career. However, writing coherently is difficult for many of them. Tangkiengsirisin (2010, 1) states that flow of ideas is the main criterion for advanced writing. This study is aimed at finding out the flows of ideas of English Arguments by Indonesian writers. The study is descriptive and qualitative, analyzing 14 articles from The Jakarta Post. The findings reveal that 64 % of the data are developed linearly, contradicting with Kaplan’s explanation that oriental groups express their ideas mostly indirectly, circularly. The socio-cultural context, i.e. globalization has changed the circular into linear pattern.
