Abstract
One of the requirements for graduation as a master or doctor is a graduate student writing a final paper in the form of a thesis or dissertation. Through a relatively long writing process to realize the written work, ideas are expressed through the choice of words and their arrangement in sentences to paragraphs and discourse. The wealth of written vocabulary is one indicator of mastering one’s writing skills. In this paper, favorite vocabulary is discussed (high frequency of occurrence) in the thesis (T-1, T-2, T-3, T-4) and dissertation (D-1, D-2, D-3, D-4). Data is collected by documentation techniques, then processed with “Aplikasi Lema.” The results of this study are found three favorite words in T-1: “Banyuwangi” (176); “Iqbal” (153); “Singodimay” (109); T-2: “supplement” (282); “Trefinger” (150); T-3: “kapata” (322); “Lounusa” (228); “Latu” (201); T-4: “Tejo” (137); “Sujiwo” (112); “Indonesia” “(49). Next, three favorite words in D-1: “crite” (293); “Production” (263); “RPS” (257); D-2: “Germany” (1072); “neurodidactic” (451); “Deutsch” (218); D-3: “dp” (945); “berian” (531); “Gorom” (289); D-4: “differentials” (847); “evidence” (610); “entry” (595). The use of written vocabulary in the thesis and dissertation is dominated by words in the field of science. This finding is very much different from research on Indonesian students’ junior high school textbooks (Kisyani, et al., 2017) and Indonesian high school (Kisyani, et al., 2018). In these two studies, the favorite word is dominated by the conjunction “yang”, “dan”, “serta”. This is due to the data sources used in this study, namely scientific work in the form of theses and dissertations, while previous studies used the books of middle and high school students, the majority of which were discourse.
