Writing Academic English by Alice Oshima


When you paraphrase, you rewrite information from outside source in your onw words without changing the meaning. Because you include in your rewriting all or nearly all of the content of the original pasage, a paraphrase is almost as long as the original. ( A summary, by contrast, is much shorter than the original.)

  1. Sometimes when English is our second language, it is easy to find ourselves repeating the same words and phrases that are in the text. This makes us to unintentionally commit plagiarism.
