The PhD is traditionally awarded solely on the basis of a dissertation, a substantial piece of writing which reports original research into a closely defined area of enquiry. Within linguistics, some PhD students may do most of their work in libraries, or spend part of their time collecting and analysing data, or carry out experiments or field work. The completion of the PhD dissertation is generally expected to take 3 years, and most funding is based on this assumption.
