Abstract

This paper proposes a discussion about reiterations which are, alongside with collocations, lexical relations as cohesion patterns. Reiteration represents the repetition of a lexical item, or the occurrence of a synonym of some kind in the context of reference. We present the most important types of reiterations: simple repetitions, complex repetitions, substitution, paraphrase (equivalence and contrast), hyponymy and meronymy, pointing out that reiteration is itself cohesive.

Keywords: lexical relations, reiterations, repetitions, cohesive patterns
