When it is not possible to compare the suspi- cious document to the source document(s) plagiarism has been committed from, the evi- dence of plagiarism has to be looked for in- trinsically in the document itself. In this pa- per, we introduce a novel language- independent intrinsic plagiarism detection method which is based on a new text repre- sentation that we called n-gram classes. The proposed method was evaluated on three pub- licly available standard corpora. The obtained results are comparable to the ones obtained by the best state-of-the-art methods.
