I was thinking about my undergraduate thesis, just had an idea for the topic, and need advice on it. : )
So here it is: I've noticed the Chinese characters in many American movies are not played by native Chinese speakers, so they end up saying things deviated from the standard spoken Chinese. Can I write my thesis analyzing this kind of Chinese? Would it be a good topic? And if I do write about it , how do I do it?
Sorry if this question is stupid. I'm studying in the English department and want to go to graduate school to study linguistics, so I figured I should my thesis somewhat realating to linguistics. But I've never taken any course on linguistics (because the school doesn't offer), only been reading about it by myself. And the weird thing is the department doesn't assign advisors for our theses, so I have no clue how I'm going to do this.
Any comments are appreciated
