Abstract

This study aimed to analyze class VII students’ grammatical cohesion devices and verbal abilities in narrative essays. This type of research is descriptive qualitative. The subject of this research is a narrative essay of students of SMP Negeri 2 Tangen with 10 students. The object of this research is the tools of cohesion and verbal ability in the narrative essays of students of SMP Negeri 2 Tangen. Data collection was done by observing and taking notes. The data analysis technique used the mark reading technique. This study uses data triangulation, namely triangulation, that directs researchers to use several data sources, such as documents and informants from junior high school students, to collect data. This study indicates that the grammatical cohesion used is conjunctions between sentences, substitution, and the use of adverbs of time, place, and the way children are often used in writing narrative essays. The results of the analysis of the overall verbal ability of 10 students obtained the coherence of sentences and the spelling of each text written by the students. The analysis results obtained in rewriting the text that was heard were that several sentences were not coherent with 22 sentences and a readable one 13. In spelling, there were 19 sentences according to the spelling of the original text, 15 sentences that did not match the spelling. From this analysis, it can be concluded that not all students’ verbal skills were good. The number of students whose verbal skills are good, namely those whose sentences are coherent, is smaller than those who are not legible.
