If I copy 2-3 paragraphs of research (word for word) and still cite, is it still plagiarism because I just copied basically the whole body of an essay?

    I'm not saying I'll do it, I'll probably paraphrase but I still want to know.

    No. It's only plagiarism if you make it look like you wrote it. If you cite the source, you're good to go. (It's probably not a good idea to do that for the whole body of an essay though, that's a lot.)

    Yeah I won't do the whole entire body, but I *might* use one paragraph of it since I cant find any info on the certain topic. Thanks though

    One paragraph is perfectly fine. It all depends on the length of the essay though. You're welcome.
