Plagiarism is a distinguished sounding word. One would almost think that it sounds like some lofty philosophical ideal named for the great Greek teacher Plagiarus, something to be aspired to. This is not so. Plagiarism is in fact a moral misdemeanor, and an academic felony. By definition, plagiarism is “a piece of writing that has been copied from someone else and is presented as being your own work.” Socrates, Plato and Aristotle would have frowned on such a practice, and “Plagiarus” would have been kicked out of the academy. Such is the fate of many college students today.
