This paper considers a partially linear model of the form y = x beta + g(t) + e, where beta is an unknown parameter vector, g(.) is an unknown function, and e is an error term. Based on a nonparametric estimate of g(.), the parameter beta is estimated by a semiparametric weighted least squares estimator. An asymptotic theory is established for the consistency of the estimators.
