In the Philippines, an academic thesis is named by the degree, such as bachelor/undergraduate thesis or masteral thesis. However, in Philippine English , the term doctorate is typically replaced with doctoral (as in the case of "doctoral dissertation"), though in official documentation the former is still used. The terms thesis and dissertation are commonly used interchangeably in everyday language yet it generally understood that a thesis refers to bachelor/undergraduate and master academic work while a dissertation is named for doctorate work.
Third, an example of literature review writing on the chosen work of literature may reveal witty or compelling phrases that the student may quote in his or her own review. These quotes from other reviews, when the student uses them wisely and sparingly, can buttress a review's conclusions effectively, because they show that other experts have considered and possibly agree with the student's position on the work of literature. However, because literature reviews are usually fairly brief pieces of writing, students should avoid using an overabundance of outside quotes; for the most part, they should limit themselves to a thoughtful interaction with the text alone.
