I’m working on my master dissertation on the use of contrastive discourse markers in academic writing. I need to design an instrument for data collection. My proposal is attached so that the instrument will be in alignment with the purpose of the study its topic and content. Please follow the indicated directions. I need a writer with a Ph.D in linguistics to design a cloze test – as a pre-test and an instrument for my dissertation. The cloze test should be about the contrastive markers (but,however,nevertheless, despite this/that, in contrast, on the other hand, on the contrary, and instead) as indicated in my proposal. The cloze test should consist of of 13-item as multiple-choice and rational-deletion. It should ask participants to fill the gaps with the best option from among the suggested CDMs.
