How can you construct a thesis abstract?


A "thesis abstract" is actually a summary of the whole document you are writing, rather than just a single thesis sentence. Generally, this term is used for dissertations or master's thesis. You will start your thesis abstract with your thesis question and answer, but then you will need to add all of the main reasons for your response to this thesis. If you were writing a short paper, you would have all of your topic sentences, but if your abstract is of a more extended document, like a dissertation, you will need to tell just the main points of argument.
