    Code needed - finding duplicate text (not sentences) in Word

    Hi all,

    I hope someone can help me. I have been looking for code that will help me identify where I might have duplicated parts of a sentence, rather than whole paragraphs or sentences. The reason is that in early stages of my PhD I wasn't careful about copying text from different documents, now I have a 60,000 words document but the code I have found online will only highlight duplication when it's a whole sentence (ie marked by punctuation marks).

    Is there any way to do this?

    Many thanks in advance!

    Just to clarify, I have used code that was shared on this forum, unfortunately it's very patchy and doesn't find much apart from quotations, ie (p. 354) for instance.
