This is the fourth annual listing of graduate theses and dissertations in English as a second language (ESL). The studies cited here were completed during the academic year 1978-79. The listing is intended to provide graduate students and others doing research in ESL and related fields with specific, comprehensive data on current graduate-level studies. Information was contributed by program directors, graduate advisers, and department chairpersons from the institutions in the United States and Canada that are known to have graduate programs in ESL. Each of the 125 entries provides the writer's name, thesis or dissertation title, degree earned, university, year degree was granted, name of thesis adviser, department or program, and writer's address. In addition, most entries include summaries of abstracts prepared by the writers. Entries are listed under 16 headings: adult education, bilingualism, contrastive studies, culture, curriculum, grammar, materials and methods, phonology, profession, psycholinguistics, reading, second dialect, sociolinguistics, testing, vocabulary/usage and writing.
