This Register of Linguistics Theses (excluding applied linguistics theses) completed at New Zealand universities (1990-) is maintained by Paul Warren, Victoria University of Wellington. Comments to:
Description: The Linguistic Thesis allows a candidate to undertake a research project using the analytic tools acquired in the core areas of Linguistics. The thesis need not be on original data collected by the students themselves, but should contain points of theoretical interest/reflection. The chosen topic may overlap with any subject on which the candidate offers a paper, but candidates should avoid repetition of material. The analysis of the data may focus on an aspect or combination of aspects of linguistic structure or usage. For help in choosing a topic, formulating a research question, and collecting and analysing data, see the document, available in the Linguistics area of Weblearn.

In Writing an Applied Linguistics Thesis or Dissertation: A Guide to Presenting Empirical Research, Bitchener, adopting an ESP approach, investigates the process of writing the genre of thesis providing practical suggestions for Applied Linguistics graduate students. As dissertation writing can be considered as one of the relatively under-researched areas in second language writing, this step-by-step guide can be very useful for graduate students not only in Applied Linguistics but also in other disciplines.
