patchwriting

(名詞) 拼湊寫作 -- 後現代文學創作的一種手段。雖然有學者主張拼湊寫作不應被視為惡意抄襲,但由於東拼西湊的句子仍大致採用原作者的詞句與結構,若沒有使用引號,以傳統的眼光來看,這仍然是不當的行為。因此,正當的作法是,要不就是使用引號,要不就是反芻原文後,用自己的話寫出來。除了 patchwriting,後現代文學創作常用的手段還有 pastiche (拼湊模仿 -- 見引句) 和 parody (諷刺模仿) 等。

引句:
Ms. Blum also embraces various postmodern theories of plagiarism. Internet-savvy, intertextual ingénues don’t steal words; they engage in “patchwriting” and “pastiche,” constructing essays the way they create eclectic music playlists for their iPods. This practice, she argues, can be viewed as a form of homage or reverence as much as theft.
—Christine Rosen, " It’s not theft, it’s pastiche," Wall Street Journal, April 15, 2009

full-pay

(名詞) 全額支付的學費。

引句:
Many colleges discount tuition an average of 30 to 40 percent. Still, by offering even a relatively small cut, colleges get students who pay a hefty price. “The full-pays are few and far between,” said Greg Eichhorn, the vice president for enrollment management at Albright. “What we’re looking for are better-pays.”
