Abstract:

Plagiarism has long been regarded with concern by the university community
as a serious act of wrongdoing threatening core academic values. There has
been a perceived increase in plagiarism over recent years, due in part to
issues raised by the new media, a diverse student population and the rise
in English as a lingua franca. This book examines plagiarism, the
inappropriate relationship between a text and its sources, from a
linguistic perspective. Diane Pecorari brings recent linguistic research to
bear on plagiarism, including processes of first and second language
writers; interplay between reading and writing; writer's identity and
voice; and the expectations of the academic discourse community.

Using empirical data drawn from a large sample of student writing, compared
against written sources, Academic Writing and Plagiarism argues that some
plagiarism, in this linguistic context, can be regarded as a failure of
pedagogy rather than a deliberate attempt to transgress. The book examines
the implications of this gap between the institutions' expectations of the
students, student performance and institutional awareness, and suggests
pedagogic solutions to be implemented at student, tutor and institutional
levels.

Academic Writing and Plagiarism is a cutting-edge research
monograph which will be essential reading for researchers in applied
linguistics.
