There was once an American pronounced right before me the word "thesis" in a way I never expected. Although he explained a bit by saying most Chinese pronounce it in the wrong way, I am still not sure how to pronounce it.
As I still could not mark the pronunciation by English letters and thus explain where the difference is, could anyone directly tell me the right American pronunciation of it? Great thanks!
Well, I haven't found what I have lost.
Is there another word with exactly the same meaning but has the pronunciation sounds like [di:θiѕ] or alike?
Thank you, and Happy New Year to all my mentors!
Thank you, Casiopea! If dissert is the word and ['di:sәt] or [di`sә:t] is the pronunciation, could I say something like "defend my dissert"? Could it be used as noun? I am asking cause I have the impression that the American said so.
Could anyone make some sentences for dissertation? Which is more popular in campus, thesis or dissertation?

To my knowledge, Emily, "dissertation" is the word, not dissert.
Chinese (Simplified): 论文；学术演讲
Chinese (Traditional): 論文；學術演講
Moreover, in Canada, thesis is for a master's degree; dissertation is for a doctorate. The terminology varies: thesis = dissertation; dissertation = master's degree; thesis = doctorate.
