The main problem is the plagiarism exosinated by the Internet.

Instead of the meaningless bold word, what English similar word will make sense?

  • Depends what you think exosinated means. Could be encouraged, discouraged, popularized, facilitated, magnified, diminished etc. etc. – David Jun 20 '17 at 11:41

I suspect the word you're looking for is exacerbate:




Make (a problem, bad situation, or negative feeling) worse.
‘the exorbitant cost of land in urban areas only exacerbated the problem’
‘the strong pound has exacerbated the situation by making it much harder for UK companies to compete on price’

So it would be:

The main problem is the plagiarism exacerbated by the Internet.
