Hi there! I would like to understand the criteria that you use to mark essays. What are discoure markers? Can you give me some examples please? Also, what do you mean by sentence-text, sentence-para and sentence-sentence coherence, fourth root of number of words? What is the meaning of SD in sentence length SD and word length SD? Thanks a lot for marking my essays.
