Wannabe a plagiarist?

Well, probably not, but here's an interesting exercise in plagiarism for
you to try out at home. Plagiarism is an activity we all discourage and
deplore of course, but have you ever wondered how it's done, and what
happens linguistically when it's done?

You will be helping a research programme if you, LINGUIST members, would
indulge me by attempting to plagiarise an excerpt from a little known
novel, but to do your best to avoid being detected.

Please email me at this address and I will send you the (very short) text:
Many thanks
