After a recent affair of a well-known politician, a number of university students have realized how important it is to paraphrase correctly and professionally. Because if we create a paraphrase that basically quotes or just changes a few words, and we consider the text to be understood and properly used, the consistency of work increases dramatically, while the quality, authenticity, and ability to get a better mark goes down considerably.
When paraphrased from a book, let’s not forget the important principle. The vast majority of the commission will know the literature used in the final defense. Sauces, uselessness, improperly used paraphrases, or the text that we have de-phrased to work just to add a few lines to the good may not be strange to our classmates, but the professor will be in the eye and certainly not appreciated.
What is paraphrase
The way we “translate” or subtract a longer thought. Simply paraphrase it into your work, putting it in context for our research, thought, opinion, or comparison. When paraphrasing, we use classical bibliographic data that include the author’s surname, year of publication, and of course, the publication is paraphrase. The work from which we paraphrase must also be in the list of used literature, where we must include the full name of the author, the title of the work, the year of publication, the publishing house, and the ISBN.
How to paraphrase correctly
The paraphrase should serve to free the author’s idea for the needs of our work. It can also be a kind of abbreviation of text, simplification or approximation. We can also paraphrase for the purpose of excluding important ideas, not specific ideas. We can confirm or emphasize our own idea with the paraphrase of the expert author.
Never be afraid to label a well-used paraphrase.
It would be a huge mistake to give the author his own thought, because it is quite a clear thing. Paraphrased is an excellent tool in the first chapters that we are dedicated to entering work. For example, if we are going to analyze a specific problem (development of the language), we can paraphrase the text that talks about the views of individual representatives in history on how the language itself should move. There is no need for quotations here, but paraphrases are useful here, which will contribute to the expertise of the text without quoting it.
Beware of mistakes
If you change the text that contains ten sentences to “is” and “is” and “define” to “without” understanding and clarifying the text, you can easily get plagiarized from the work. Do not forget to record bibliographic data immediately, beware of the paraphrase from the Internet, often coming directly from some professional, bachelor or diploma thesis and, of course, checking the improperly used paraphrase immediately.
