Because about 2000 words of about 13,000 words (roughly
15%) was directly copied from other sources, I did not
mark the text at all. Your suggestion is good for these
kinds of issues in general, but for this, all I did was
notify my supervising editor. There is no question that
the author was attempting to pass off the pilfered
prose as his own, so nothing else was appropriate.

Although it is midday where the company is located, I
haven't lost hope that I will hear from my editor soon.
