ERWISCHT? The first six entries under this search string point to this standard statistics problem. The seventh, oddly, points to me. I wonder if somewhere, a corner-cutting student was a bit obvious.
[Note to students. If eight pages of your paper are barely literate, and I suddenly come across a section that uses the words like "eshews" or "prevalent," I'm gonna google it.]
Conscientious students even catch it. I was talking with a student who told me a story about working with a classmate, and telling that classmate to put some quotation marks and a footnote on a passage the style of which was clearly different from the rest of the paper.
