• Do you think that you could recognize something written by one of your favorite authors, even if the passage was 'anonymous'?
  • After you've been teaching a group of students for a year, can you recognize who has typed a particular piece of work even if the name is not on it (and not by recognizing the handwriting?)
  • Have you ever been suspicious that work you are marking is not all 'the student's own? Have you followed up your suspicions by searching for a particular string of words using Google, or another search engine?
  • Do you think that younger speakers in your neighborhood speak very differently from older residents?
