Language vs. Thought

Does language determine thought, does thought determine language or is the relationship more complicated than this?

If one considers the connection between thought and language, we face the questions whether we think in language, whether those who do not possess language are able to “think”, and the way language forms our thoughts. It is rather complicated question, which regards to the nature of linguistic communication. Scientists usually consider that language is a basic mean by which people transmit the content of their thoughts to other people. The problem is whether that is a right scheme of linguistic communication. The scientists faced with the problem of the relation between thought and language because this common picture of communication makes a certain priority over language. If there is ground to distrust this scheme, then one cannot expect to make a progress with the more simple questions without considering the nature of linguistic communication.

Essay on Academic Integrity

Many definitions of plagiarism show that plagiarism is a crucial problem faced by authors and writers, researchers and scientists. In general terms, plagiarism can be defined as a deliberate and conscious intent to steal someone else’s ideas and thoughts. In academic practice, plagiarism means the use of published works and someone else’s ideas without giving proper credit to that person. Plagiarism can take different forms from improper paraphrasing of the thoughts to paper or text copied from another paper without knowledge of the author. Also, plagiarism is copying of another’s paper without citation, failure to put quotation marks; omitting citations combining the work of two authors without reference to either carelessness in preparing reference lists representing ideas or work of another as researcher’s own failure to secure permission for use of figures, tables or illustrations, whether published or not (Davis 1999).

If a student (scientist) copy/paste from a source but does not cite material properly.
