Theft, Fraud, and the Loss of Voice by Keith Hjortshoj
Excerpted from Keith Hjortshoj's magnificent Transition to College Writing, a book I recommend heartily and often for students, "Theft, fraud, and loss of voice," situates plagiarism in the context of a novice writers struggling to find their own voices.
Very often mistakes in source use comes from the simple fact that writers do not know where their voice begins and where a source ends.
To learn more about the full text, Transition to College Writing, which is as a gentle and patient an introduction to college writing as you'll ever find, click the cover image below.
