Japanese students call a report and essay made up by only putting data downloaded from the Internet e.g. passages from Wikipedia put together without including their own thoughts or creative ideas, a “コピペ-Kopipe,” which is pronounced as 'kopipay.'
It is a compound of ‘copied + pasted + paper’. Incidentally ‘copy ,’ ‘paste,’ and ‘paper’ are all adapted to Japanese language, and pronounced as ‘kopi-i, ‘paisuto, and ‘paypah’.
To me 'Kopipe' is akin to plagiarism, but it doesn’t have the same criminal overtone as plagiarism itself. It seems to be just a labor-saving editing or blending job for students.
While riding on the train, I've overheard students say to each other:
“I submitted a report in time by ‘kopipeing’ articles”
innocently, as if they were playing a game.
Is there a similar student jargon or abbreviation for ‘Kopipe’ in English?
