The role of cohesion and script in note-taking for consecutive interpretation is discussed. Because note-taking is closely associated with comprehension and memory, the discussion looks first at the function of previously stored knowledge, both linguistically and culturally, which is known as script, and grammatical and lexical cohesion in understanding a discourse. Then the relationship between comprehension and memory is explored, and it is proposed that discourse analysis accomplished by grouping sentences semantically and logically can contribute to memory. Finally, a note-taking technique using key words, abbreviations, symbols, and layout of notes to call up memory is described. Examples of discourse, analysis, and related note-taking are offered.
