What is the definition of quoting and when would you use it in a paper?
Weegy: Quoting is the repetition of one expression as part of another one, particularly when the quoted expression is well-known or explicitly attributed by citation to its original source, [ and it is indicated by (punctuated with) quotation marks. Using quotations is the easiest way to include source material, but quotations should be used carefully and sparingly. While paraphrasing and summarizing provide the opportunity to show your understanding of the source material, quoting may only show your ability to type it. Having said that, there are a few very good reasons that you might want to use a quote rather than a paraphrase or summary: Accuracy: You are unable to paraphrase or summarize the source material without changing the author s intent. Authority: You may want to use a quote to lend expert authority for your assertion or to provide source material for analysis. Conciseness: Your attempts to paraphrase or summarize are awkward or much longer than the source material. Unforgettable language: You believe that the words of the author are memorable or remarkable because of their effectiveness or historical flavor. Additionally, the author may have used a unique phrase or sentence, and you want to comment on words or phrases themselves. When you decide to quote, be careful of relying too much upon one source or quoting too much of a source and make sure that your use of the quote demonstrates an understanding of the source material. Essentially, you want to avoid having a paper that is a string of quotes with occasional input from you. Source: ] User: What is the definition of summarizing and when would you use it in a paper?

What is the definition of paraphrasing and when would you use it in a paper?
Weegy: Paraphrasing is to express the meaning of (the writer or speaker or something written or spoken) using different words, esp. to achieve greater clarity. Paraphrasing can be tricky. [ You need to make sure that you don't copy the original author's style or wording. Even if you have a citation, such borrowing would be considered plagiarism. Paraphrases should sound like you, using vocabulary and sentence structures that your reader would recognize as your work. To make sure you are not plagiarizing unintentionally, think about and jot down the source's main points. Then, write your paraphrase without looking at the original. When you have finished, compare your paraphrase with the original: Have you simply changed a few words to synonyms? Try again. Being handy with a thesaurus is not enough to make the sentence yours. Have you included exact sequences of words from the original? If so, make sure to put quotation marks around those phrases, or re-write until the entire paraphrase is your words. Have you retained the meaning of the original? Changing the author's meaning is not plagiarism, but academic honesty requires you to represent other's work accurately in your writing. ] User: When is it acceptable to copy/paste information from a website and use it in your own research paper? Explain what you would need to do to make it acceptable. Weegy: When using an author's exact words, you need to use quotation marks and cite it. [ When you paraphrase it, you still need to cite the original author's works and ideas. ] User: How would you briefly explain the difference to someone who was confused (More)
