3 SUMMARY, PARAPHRASE, & QUOTATION What do summaries, paraphrases, and quotes allow writers to do?They are 3 ways of incorporating other writers' ideas into your own writing.
4 SUMMARY, PARAPHRASE, & QUOTATION How do summaries, paraphrases, and quotes differ from one another?They differ according to the similarity of your writing to the source writing.They differ according to the level of specificity in communicating the ideas of the source writing.
5 QUOTATION Is identical to the original—word for word. Is the most specific of the three techniques, but should be used the least.Should never stand by itself as a complete sentence (known as a “floating quote”). Instead, integrate every quote into a sentence of your own.Requires a parenthetical citation—otherwise, it’s plagiarism.
6 Where do you introduce your quotation? At the beginning:Professor Mahmoud Aziz asserts that Hemingway's reputation "is in large part dependent upon the real-world exploits of the author" (23).Or in the middle of the quotation:"Education without attention to the arts," explains theorist Elliot Eisner, "would be an impoverished enterprise" (1).Or at the end:"They can run, but they can't hide," warned President Bush during a recent press conference (52).
7 PARAPHRASEIs a precise restatement of a short passage—usually no more than a sentence or two.Is more specific than summary, but more general than a quotationRequires that you clearly understand the original passage so you do not distort its meaning.Uses your own original wording and sentence structure—otherwise, it’s plagiarism.Is usually very close to the same length as the original passage.Requires a parenthetical citation—otherwise, it’s plagiarism.
8 SUMMARY Is a general restatement of the main idea of a passage. Is the most general of the three techniques.Requires that you clearly understand the original passage so you do not distort its meaning.Uses your own original wording and sentence structure—otherwise, it’s plagiarism.Is much shorter in length than the original.Requires a parenthetical citation—otherwise, it’s plagiarism.A parenthetical citation consists of the author’s last name and the page number(s) of the borrowed material in parentheses. For example: (Smith 12).
