A position or proposition which a person advances and offers to maintain, or which is actually maintained by argument.
A proposition that is maintained by argument;the issue on which an argument takes position.
The thesis of a research paper is its main point or basic argument. The final, definite, thesis for a paper should not be set in stone before the research begins. An argument has to grow out of the research, and the author's evolving thinking about it. It is a good idea to come up with a "working thesis," or hypothesis, before beginning the research, then refine this idea as the project develops. Back | Top of glossary
