When someone paraphrases, they are talking about a general concept. This is the same as summarizing. Here, though, it is important to make sure the words and ideas are accurate and relevant to the conversation.
If you are paraphrasing a paragraph, it’s important to know that the person who wrote it is the one who is paraphrasing. The person who wrote it is not the person who is paraphrasing.
There’s a saying that if the person you’re speaking to is a lawyer, or a doctor, or a lawyer, then the person you are speaking to is a lawyer. Well, that’s not necessarily true. For example, the person who wrote the summary of the blogpost I linked to above is also the person who wrote the blogpost itself. So, if you were writing your own blogpost, you’d be writing it in your own words, not someone else’s.
I don’t think that summarizing someone’s blogpost is wrong. I think it is necessary. I also think paraphrasing someone’s blogpost (even in your own words) is a great way to go about things. When a blogger posts, he or she is essentially a writer. They are not necessarily a good writer. However, they can be more effective than someone who just writes what he or she hears.
I think summarizing someone else’s blogpost is a great way to go about things, but we mustn’t forget that it’s not always possible to put your own words into your own words. The words you use are a reflection of what you’re feeling at the time. If you’re feeling angry, you aren’t going to write “I’m angry”.
By summarizing, you are in effect saying that you feel angry, and you are trying to explain that to others. What you are not saying is that you feel angry. I dont know who is more angry, those who feel angry or those who feel less angry. If you feel angry, you will likely write about it. However, if you feel less angry, you may want to write something else.
If you are using your own words, they will likely be less clear and more ambiguous. If you are paraphrasing, you can often come across as a little vague, but you are still doing an analysis of what is actually happening in the world.
Your words will certainly be less clear and more ambiguous. You may want to repeat them as you write. And you may want to repeat your own words in writing.
You don’t have to take my word for it, but I’m pretty confident that paraphrasing and summarizing are two different things. A paraphrasing is when you summarize things that are already there in the sentence you’ve just written. For example, if I’m talking about a movie, and I’m talking about how it starts, I’m paraphrasing.
When I paraphrase, I start summarizing by saying what I was going to say. When I write a story, I start summarizing by writing what I was going to write.
