being new to qualitative research, i am a bit confused about where and when i have to state my (working) hypotheses. my qualitative study is of a linguistic nature. i have learnt that it is in the final (concluding) chapter that we can hypothesise or build up theories. from other sources, i found that working hypothesises can be informed by some literature review. in this case, shall i mention them after having reviewed the literature?
