ANSWER
‘Plagiarism is defined as ‘a piece of writing or other work, reflecting such unauthorized use or imitation’ (Dictionary.com, Plagiarism).
This quote taken directly from the web site has been cited so giving credit to Dictionary.com for producing it. Had I not cited this correctly so that others could easily identify it’s source, then it would have been plagiarised. It is wrong to do this as the author, or originator, would lose the rights to the definition through my effectively claiming it to be mine.

Authors of books or articles are particular susceptible to plagiarism as they can make money from their writings, so copying and reproducing it without citing it, opens you up to a potential charge of ‘theft’.’

Something like this to get you going?
Because the above is not deemed to have been ‘published’, it is not plagiarism if used, despite what GRACE says, so you are perfectly at liberty to either cite it, or not.

All Quotes should be cited (and you DON”T correct mistakes in the quote as that changes the quote), as are Speeches.

*If you are NOT guilty, or don’t feel you are, you can use the essay as a repudiation of the charge and proof through argument, of your innocence.
