"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Are you looking to do a thesis on this topic?
Or are you concerned that someone is copying your work?
Or are you copying someone else's work and trying not to get caught?

A Google Search for  "lexical analysis plagiarism"  will get you started in any case.

The investigator will of course use the database he believes is most appropriate.

For an instructor trying to prevent copying on a particular programming assignment, he will do a pairwise comparison of all programs turned in.

For term papers, many universities use Anti-plagiarism Services [Turnitin.com for example] that have large proprietary databases of term papers.  Students are typically required to turn their papers into the database, which is one way the database grows.

There are commerical Newspaper and Legal databases [Lexus and Nexus] that can be used if you pay for access.

If you suspect that a particular author has copied your work, you can compare just the two items.  At least one Harvard student novelist and a couple of Pulizer Prize winning historians has been caught this way.
