Linking is felt in the relation of pronouns to antecedents and of verb tenses in sequence, no less than in the order and aspects of the larger parts of sentences. In short, linking is for the writer a principle of construction. There is not much linking, or not good linking, in the spontaneous expression of the mind when it gropes toward a meaning.
