The main idea of paraphrases is to offer a simpler, more concise, and more interesting interpretation of a text. Once the original author has been paraphrased, it can be more easily read and understood by the intended audience.

Paraphrasing is a literary device that is defined as "the rewording or restating of the meaning of a text with different words or in different words.
Some examples of paraphrasing are:

  • The boy was sad.- He was feeling sad
  • I can't believe it.- There's no way I could believe this!

This cognitive and affective safety for the brain to think is provided by the paraphrase. So, for example, if a question is asked without a paraphrase, the brain may shut off thinking because it perceives a danger. It is critical to me that I provide the best possible thinking environment for someone.

Paraphrasing technique is an English writing technique that paraphrases a text or a passage from one language to another. It includes taking important parts of the text, rearranging it and then writing the original text in new words.

She made me angry when she was rude at dinner. This paraphrase is an example of a rewording which shortens and simplifies while maintaining the same meaning.
