express the meaning of (the writer or speaker or something written or spoken) using different words, especially to achieve greater clarity.


"you can either quote or paraphrase literary texts"
synonyms: rewordrephrase, put/express in other words, rewritegloss
"the reporter was not quoting directly but paraphrasing her remarks"

Paraphrasing involves putting a passage from source material into your own words. A paraphrase must also be attributed to the original source. Paraphrased material is usually shorter than the original passage, taking a somewhat broader segment of the source and condensing it slightly.

Summarizing involves putting the main idea(s) into your own words, including only the main point(s). Once again, it is necessary to attribute summarized ideas to the original source. Summaries are significantly shorter than the original and take a broad overview of the source material.
