Thesis Statement

A thesis statement usually appears at the end[1] of the introductory paragraph of a paper, and it offers a concise summary of the main point or claim of the essay, research paper, etc. It is usually expressed in one sentence and the statement may reiterated elsewhere; it states that "so and so" is "so and so".[2] The thesis statement is developed, supported, and explained in the course of the paper by means of examples and evidence. Thesis statements help organize and develop the system of proper writing. They are essential components of scholarly research papers.

Types of thesis statements

The thesis statement will reflect the kind of paper being written. There are three kinds of papers: analytical, expository, and argumentative. The thesis statement will take a different form for each of these kinds of papers.[1]
