Title: Academic Writing and Plagiarism
Subtitle: A Linguistic Analysis
Written By: Diane Pecorari
URL: http://www.continuumbooks.com/books/detail.aspx?BookId=158102&SearchType=Basic
Description:

Please Note: This is a new version of a previously announced book.

"Attitudes to plagiarism are as diverse as the contexts in which it
emerges, but this meticulous investigation makes an important contribution
to the debate. It will make interesting reading not only for researchers in
applied Linguistics but also for anyone concerned with academic writing,
faculty academic conduct officers, directors of studies and academic
registrars"
Times Higher Education

"This is a book that deserves to be widely read, not only by researchers on
written discourse, teachers of academic writing and supervisors, but more
generally" System

"This book is a very useful contribution to the literature on writing using
sources."
Tesolanz Newsletter

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 looks at 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.
