To plagiarise is to robe credit of another person's work. Particularly, plagiarism in text means including text fragments (and even an entire document) from an author without giving him the correspondent credit. In this work we describe our first attempt to detect plagiarised segments in a text employing statistical Language Models (LMs) and perplexity. The preliminary experiments, carried out on two specialised and literary corpora (including original, part-of-speech and stemmed versions), show that perplexity of a text segment, given a Language Model calculated over an author text, is a relevant feature in plagiarism detection.
