Abstract

Citation, an indispensible aspect in academic writing, has recently been receiving considerable research attention. This present study empirically delves into citation practices in Master’s theses written by Indonesian student writers. This study employed corpus-based approach. Applying a purposive sampling, there were 7 exemplary theses included in this study. From those theses, it generated 305 citations which then were built as the corpus. A corpus toolkit AntConc3.4.3w was chosen to assist the analysis. Types of citations were analyzed based on Thompson and Tribble’s (2001) framework. Corpus analysis on types of citations revealed that Verb Controlling was more favoured; while Reference form was totally absent. Since citing contributes to succesful writers, this study suggests that citation practices particularly types of citations need to be inculcated in the classroom to help the student writers develop citation skill.
