I feel sure that plagiarism is rife everywhere in today's world, where
honesty and sincerity are hardly dominant values in the self-promoting
rat-race that life has become for many millions. Remember the riots a
couple of years back in a certain country when university authorities
tried to challenge the long-standing right of students to cheat in
exams? In a sense, we who teach in places where English is a (very)
foreign language and require papers to be written in English have the
advantage -- "This paper is in perfect English, you could not have
written it" (many have developed strategies of distorting the grammar as
a result). Last week, struck by an elegant passage in a student's
Chaucer paper, I Google-searched it through Yahoo, putting in a 6-word
phrase. One site was instantly identified as a perfect match. It was
part of my own home page, the words were written by me, and I had not
recognized them. There are so many texts freely available online now
that students who pay money are being extra lazy. Evaluation will have
to be based on individual 15-minute interviews...
