Dear Linguists,

I wonder if you can help me. I am a PhD student in Applied Linguistics at the University of Essex, comparing the use of lexical bundles in academic writing in native/non-native students and expert writers.

I am currently collecting a corpus of Masters dissertations in any area of Linguistics/Applied Linguistics/Sociolinguistics from native speakers of English.

If you are a native student who has passed masters degree in Linguistics/Applied Linguistics/TEFL or if you are a faculty member having past or current students who have completed such an MA dissertation, could you please ask them to contact me if they are willing to participate in my study? All data will be treated anonymously and confidentially. The data can be sent to me at

Many thanks for your help,
