Hi, Dear teachers:
Here's a sentence :
It's actually a moral issue, albeit the dividing line blurs of searching for data and plagiarising and it's hard to tell which side you are on.
IF it's correct, I think it's inversion. The author put the "blurs" before the "of" .
No. The subject and verb are lines blur. You don't want an of between a subject and a verb.
It's actually another way of saying the following sentence:
It's actually a moral issue, albeit the dividing line of searching for data and plagiarising blurs and it's hard to tell which side you are on
Am Ｉunderstanding it right? Yes. Good job!
Btw, can I substitute plagiarising with plagiarism here? Yes. But -ing is a good choice, because it parallels the -ing in searching, and parallelism helps when you make a list or series. Not required here, though. Plagiarism is fine.
And are there other errors in the first sentence??? I think so. Of makes no sense. I'd use between instead: ...the dividing line between searching...and plagiarizing.... Or that separates: The dividing line that separates...
