Abstract:The aim of the present study is to describe how the explicit connections between sentences in a paragraph and between paragraphs are used by two different writer groups. The material consists of 54 essays in Swedish, half of which were written by students with Finnish as their mother tongue, the other half by students with Swedish as their mother tongue. The students were asked to write a short newspaper article based on 23 given facts, referred to as information units.

About 35 % of the explicit connections consist of those between sentences in a paragraph and between paragraphs, so they are much more uncommon than those within a sentence. The two writer groups use the connections in quite a similar way. The only differences between the groups can be seen in the way they use thematisation. The Swedish-speaking writers use more often this type of connection in their essays than the Finnish-speaking writers. One reason for this is probably the lack of a construction like this in Finnish. However, there are notable individual differences within the writer groups. Some writers hardly use any connections of this type at all, while some use them so much that it feels disturbing.
