WP:DICDEF[edit]

i dont think this article adheres to the wikipedia is not a dictionary rule. i also added a item to the ph disambiguation which might also not adhere to it. i dont think it's a stub either. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 66.97.208.139 (talkcontribs) 16:55, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

Paraphrasis[edit]

"A paraphrase (from the Greek paraphrasis)" -- Added this, as some articles mention the Greek word but don't define it. Anybody care to add the correct spelling in Greek? (I can guess it but not be certain.) -- Writtenonsand 12:09, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

I don't think this definition is correct. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.145.154.52 (talk) 08:11, 12 November 2007 (UTC)

I concur. This is not a good definition of paraphrase. A paraphrase means a retention of meaning transmitted in new or other language. It is a translation within the same linguistic code. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.166.16.74 (talk) 14:58, 22 November 2007 (UTC)

the national heart lung blood association endorsed exercise as a way to reduce stress, and recommends cardiovascular exercise that elevates the heart rate for 15 to 30 minutes 3 to 4 times a week. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 112.202.141.169 (talk) 14:33, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

Is quoting the word 'paraphrase' to paraphrase it?[edit]

I did a bit of searching (not intensive or thorough/deep, mind you) and found consensus on the definitions of paraphrasing as well as when to use it - but did not 'find' any discussions (let alone from fairly reputable sources) on whether referring to the act itself (noun) by use of itself (verb).

I found some discussions but one notable one on Quoting vs Parenthesis [1]

Also, the use of quoting as parenthesis is itself not defined.[2]
