Abstract: In this research, the writer discusses the using of lexical cohesion in Islamic State discourse. The datas are collected from on June 2015 edition. This research is aimed to find out the types of lexical cohesion appear in the articles and to know the dominant lexical cohesion device which is used. The writer uses a qualitative method in this research. She uses Halliday and Hasan‟s theory of cohesion to find out the lexical cohesion with a descriptive analysis by identifying and analyzing articles from online media. According to the theory, lexical cohesion is divided into two main categories, reiteration and collocation. To focus on the study, the writer limits the problem by focusing the research on finding the devices of lexical cohesion on the articles and the dominant device of it. From the analysis, the writer shows that the lexical cohesion devices which occur in the articles are repetition, synonym, superordinate, general word, and collocation. But, in one of the articles not all of those devices are found. Besides, the dominant lexical of the two articles is repetition.
