Here's a table that outlines the basic differences!
|Cohesion is a quantitative property.||Coherence is a qualitative property.|
|It is observable as it is dealt with the actual written content.||It is abstract as it deals with the ideas.|
|Cohesion is a measurable property
that can be
measured by checking the lexical syntaxes and grammar rules
|Coherence is not a measurable property and
is very hard to achieve.
|Cohesion focuses more on lexical syntax and
grammar in sentence formation..
|Coherence is more sort of a pattern
in the collected parts of writings.
|Cohesion is the writer’s attribute and is brought
by using different techniques like repeated
words/ideas, reference words, transition signals, substitution, etc.
|Coherence is the attribute that is decided
by the end-user or reader, which determines
whether the content seems meaningful,
understanding and useful.
