I once got accused for plagiarizing because I used semicolons and dashes appropriately.

im sry but what are semicolons, i search for it and didnt understand nothing at all...
but the lonely island song was neat

a semicolon; used when elaborating on a point made

for exemple?
the song only made some rimes, but not a point

my sentence above was an appropriate use of the semi colon; it was grammatically accurate
User avatar #83 to #82 - mrgaw (08/11/2014) [-]
ah is an explanation of the world itself in the same sentence but directly explaining it like a diccionary would
thank you i got it
#130 to #82 - Rascal (08/12/2014) [-]
Pretty sure a colon would be more appropriate there; a semi colon separates two independent clauses, whereas a colon can just be used to expand on an idea (such as "a semicolon"), independent or not.
User avatar #88 to #76 - mylazy (08/12/2014) [-]
A semi colon is this ";"

It is used similarly to how you may use ", and" or ", but" (comma is meant to be in quotes). It combines two separate independent clauses (two sentence that can stand on their own). It is mostly used when the two sentences are very closely related and the normal conjunctions don't fit. It may also be used when making lists if the items in the list contain commas on their own, such as with number that have a fairly large number of digits.

I got accused of it this semester in my college. It was funny because it was my own work. "You plagiarized your own work." I used a paragraph from one of my old essays i used earlier that year.....cited it....
#159 to #68 - Rascal (08/12/2014) [-]
if its yourself is it still plagiarization, because i thought it was only plagairizing if you didnt give the author credit, and you are both authors

we had to write a paper about something we were passionate about as part of working on essay skills. The paper had no limits on content as long as it followed the rules and we completed it within two hours time. We were allowed to use books in the classroom to strengthen our essays and help us learn how to cite sources.
I decided i wanted to write about space and the future of astronomy. The thesis was simply about space travel, something along the lines of "With exciting new technologies, growing terrestrial needs, and limitless possibilities in space the future of space travel has nowhere to go but to infinity and beyond" not exactly the thesis sentence. To start the paragraph out though i put something along the lines of "since humanity first clawed its way out of the mud and around fires it has looked deep into the stars. Waiting, watching, wondering it struck us with awe and wonder regardless of borders or beliefs. In every one of our hearts through every step of time we all collectively dreamed of someday walking among the heavens." Not exactly but roughly that. She said there was no way i could have written that in 4th grade and gave me a zero and called my mom to tell her i cheated. I missed a recess even though my mom explained i probably wrote it. I still think of it any time i see her around town to this day.

pretty good for a 4th grader, should have given you a chance to talk about the essay to see if you *********** or if you were smart enough to actually write it like my English professor did

On maybe the second day of Spanish class one year I was chewed out and told I shouldn't use online translators... I didn't, but I did look up some words I didn't know.

I love being punished for taking the initiative to learn...
User avatar #106 to #19 - zers (08/12/2014) [-]
It's not learning if you look something up. Unless you actually take the time to remember and comprehend what ot is you're saying. Besides, language teachers want you to use what they've taught you so they know that you understand what they are teaching. If you just pull a more advanced word out of thin air they're going to be all like "Well where the **** did this **** come from?"
User avatar #107 to #106 - CallMeCrisco (08/12/2014) [-]
Keep in mind, this was either the first or second day of school. Bitch hadn't taught us ANYthing yet. And indeed, I learned those words, and how to use them in the right context.

#109 to #107 - zers (08/12/2014) [-]
It also might have been because teachers hate having students being smarter than them.  I had a science teacher in elementary school that would state something that would be wrong and when i would correct him he would gone me the meanest 			*******		 glare.

I didn't have any accusations of plagiarism,but I had a bunch of unqualified ******** .
I remember getting into 11th year after pretty much straight A's in english I'm bilingual
But then that man came.....Goddamnit....at first I didn't have anything against him.He was oblivious regarding the mockery from the classes more obnoxious students,and he seemed a bit slow,but bearable.

Then I got my first exam back....He scolded me for making up words like "eerie","misty" and some more ,the list goes on,but I can't remember all of them .

I ended up walking into the neighboring classroom and brought back a dictionary.
I searched for every single word he marked,and whenever I found one,I rubbed the dictionary in his face,literally

The ******* rage man !!! I also had several arguments with an English teacher because I knew words she didn't. (English as second language). She just insisted that she was right and I wrong because "I HAVE THE DIPLOMA AND NOT YOU YOU LIL **** "
User avatar #89 to #33 - edgecutter (08/12/2014) [-]
I once got a mark down for using the word "whilst". Teacher claimed it was "too old" and "not used in modern English".

Woman spoke more Flemish than English throughout her sentences that were supposed to be English.

Then she goes on to use the word "sphere" as if it meant "mood".
(In Dutch/Flemish, "sfeer" is pronounced somewhat like "sphere" and means mood)

My 11th grade english teacher told us a story about his friend in college who wrote an essay of some kind and ended up failing the course he wrote the essay for. So he took the course again the following year and ended up using the same essay, because he thought it would be pointless to write another, and got sued by the school for plagiarizing his own essay.

I have a doozy of a story about a teacher accusing me of plagiarizing.

>Have to do a critical essay for a final in a high school English class
>Assigned seating in the computer lab puts me beside this white stoner kid, who shows up to the essay high as ****
>I'm writing intently, after copious amounts of preparation
>Stoner kid copies my essay word for word very discretely without me noticing
>A week later, the teacher pulls me out of class to inform me I failed the essay because I copied it from the kid beside me
>I flip out, and ask her if it's because I'm a visible minority I'm native american and really look like it.
>She looks at me aghast, and yells "No, it's because you copied (Stoner Kid) word for word. I'm very disappointed. You're lucky you're not getting expelled."
>It's a dick move, I understand, but I was livid. I worked hard as **** and got a 0%
>I leave class to go tell a counselor, enraged
>He freaks out, knowing I'm a 3.8 GPA student, and calls the principle.
>Counselor has my back because he's bro-tier
>Teacher ends up getting a report filed on her from the principle, and has to take a leave of absence for the duration of the report
>I receive a mark of 100% on the essay, the stoner kid gets a mark of 0% and had to retake the course again

The teacher didn't get fired, but she had to go on a leave for two weeks. They couldn't really prove that her accusation was driven through racist motives, but native people aren't really treated too well in my school and area so I still have speculations.

Be careful you're not just throwing the race card every which way you damn well please just because there's the appearance of racism. It's a responsibility you need to intermittently use, otherwise no one will really take it seriously.
User avatar #146 to #48 - forsthe (08/12/2014) [-]
I should have probably added a backstory for her racial belligerence.
My mom is white, and at the meet the teacher our school does after the first report cards, my teacher literally spoke, in regards to my mom, "Oh my, you're white. wow".
I'm not even kidding, she legit said that to my mom.
There's a few other occasions where she's given a harder time to other native kids in my class and the school, and she led the coupe to ban the religious "Smudging" from our schools.
So yea, I felt there was a little racism involved

I've always been a great writer. I couldn't tell you how I do it because I honestly have no idea. I could type up a 4 page essay in an hour in a wide range of vocabularies. English classes in highs school are a breeze for me. So, being the entrepreneur I am, I started selling essays to my classmates. Cheap at first, just a few dollars for a 2 page essay. Soon more and more people wanted to getting into the essay ring so I started hiring other people that I trusted could write within a certain vocabulary to pick up some slack for me. Of course, I got 50% of the money because I edited most of the essays myself.

Last year in 11th grade, I made around 700-800 dollars at the head of a plagiarizing empire. Over the summer, I've met with people and told them to spread the word that I'm passing on my possession to a friend of mine because I didn't want to risk my scholarship with it.

You don't have to believe me, I just wanted to tell my story.

I did the same in college. Lots of foreign students who needed help and/or didn't want to do the work. I did anything from college comp and creative writing to Anatomy and Physiology. The only time I got caught was by my Zoology professor. He recognized my style of writing. The moroccans more than anyone were willing to throw money at so they could party rather than do their classwork. Made well over $2000 one semester, getting them to pay up was a pain sometimes though.

School is good.

No but seriously, schools are designed for submissive learners. Ones that fall under the teacher and do exactly what they say. They don't give a **** about true learning. You can thank the rise of female teachers in early education for that.

I got accused of plagarism when I made a powerpoint on retro items for design tech class in year 9. My dad watched me make half of it, so when my dad picked me up during school a couple of weeks later (I had a doctor's appointment) the teacher saw him and came through as I arrived and told him I'd plagarised because she didn't understand half the words I used. My dad took one look at her and said "My daughter's vocabulary is above that of the average mind's." and then took me to the doctor's. I got ice cream after.

Not about plagiarism, but once in second grade I submitted an essay. I didn't have room at the end of the line so I did that cut a word in half and continue it on the next like thing, like in formatted novels and things like that.
My teacher counted off on it saying that, although it was correct, we hadn't learned to do that yet in actual writing so I shouldn't do it.

One of my sisters got a C on an essay she wrote about her experience with having cancer. The note the teacher wrote on the top said "Beautifully written, excellent grammar and sentence structure. Points were taken off because it was too cliche"
They had to write about a life changing experience. She framed that page of the essay.
User avatar #112 to #110 - youngneil ONLINE (08/12/2014) [-]
Alright, that sounded weird when I re-read it. My sister framed it, and keeps it in her living room. Her teacher didn't frame it.
