Japanese students call a report and essay made up by only putting data downloaded from internet e.g. Wikipedia together without including their own thought 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 plagiarism, but it doesn’t have criminal tone as plagiarism has. It seems to be just a labor-saving editing or blending job for students. I heard they say in the train “I submitted a report in time by ‘kopipeing’ articles” innocently just like playing a game..
Is there a similar student jargon or abbreviation of ‘Kopipe’ in English?
