A CDE Definition
Using Roget's Thesaurus or another synonym listing to avoid plagiarism detection of stolen copyrighted text. When words are replaced on a large body of text with a single search-and-replace function, the results will not compare exactly to the original work. For example, if a budding anthropologist "lifted" a portion of Jane Goodall's studies and replaced every instance of "gorillas" with "primates," the plagiarism may go undetected. See anti-plagiarism software.
Software that searches the Web for duplicate textual content. It may be a stand-alone program installed in the user's computer or a function of a website, such as www.turnitin.com. Universities increasingly use anti-plagiarism software to determine if students have copied someone else's prose, and writers use it to see if others are using their copyrighted work in full or in part. See plagiarism and Rogeting.
