When making use of verbal language, it is vital that cohesive and coherent techniques are exploited adequately so that communication takes place the best way possible. Bearing this idea in mind, consider the following use of the English language:
''In a recent study, children in the city of Baltimore, USA, were interviewed about their prospects. Their ambitions reflected their own experience. Those from high-income families hoped to become lawyers or doctors, because those were typical professions of their parents' friends. Those from poorer backgrounds wanted to be professional sportspeople or music artists, because those were the people who had succeeded in their communities. However, they expected to be electricians or hairdressers. At school, the more privileged children performed better, because they knew that if they got good grades, their prospects of becoming a lawyer or doctor were good. The children from poorer backgrounds had no such incentive to do well at academic subjects and performed much worse. Nevertheless, when their school offered cash prizes on condition that their grades improved, the improvement was immediate.''
