Question and answer
Q: Describe how you would use summary, quotation, and paraphrase techniques to incorporate outside sources and pieces of evidence in a paper
A: Quotation: A quotation must use the exact words of the source. If the quotation is relatively short (usually fewer than 3 lines or 40 words), those words must be enclosed in quotation marks. [ For instance, As Steven Strang points out, “Contrary to some popular notions, most writers do not have full-blown ideas popping out of their heads like Athena” (48). Notice that the quotation is
introduced (“As Steven Strang points out”), that the exact words are enclosed in quotation marks, and that the page number is given (using, in this case, the MLA style). At the end of the paper, there would be a bibliographical entry that would give the author, the title of the source, the publisher, date of publication, etc.) Longer quotations are given in block quotations (see the quotations from Ed White and john Edlund later on in this entry). Paraphrase: To paraphrase is to put the ideas in a passage into our own words, usually following the order in which the ideas were presented in the original. All major ideas are included. Usually a paraphrase is a bit shorter than the original, but when terms or concepts have to be defined, a paraphrase might actually be longer. Any paraphrase requires the same kind of citation as an exact quotation. ............ ]
