I saw your corrections and I thank you for your help.

Shall I write this way:
1) The interior monologue has the following features: first, it is immediate since it lacks the conventional syntax and it is free from introductory expressions. Second, it is characterized by two levels of narration.

  • English -

    Since you say "features" in the first clause, you should not have "first" and "second" in separate sentences. Try this:

    the interior monologue has the following features: First, it is immediate since it lacks the conventional syntax and it is free from introductory expressions; second, it is characterized by two levels of narration.

    Because the clauses after the colon make a complete sentence, you need to capitalize the F on "first."
