It seems to me that every book reminds me of writing a dissertation.
This past May, missing her husband and 5-year-old daughter, she returned to Dhaka to write her dissertation.
I think my dissertation and Sears's book have two different definitions of attachment.
1610s, "discussion, debate," from Latin dissertationem (nominative dissertatio) "discourse," noun of action from past participle stem of dissertare "debate, argue, examine, harangue," frequentative of disserere "discuss, examine," from dis- "apart" (see dis-) + serere "to arrange words" (see series). Sense of "formal, written treatise" is 1650s.
