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 220.127.116.11 (talk • contribs) 16:55, 6 December 2006 (UTC)
"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 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 18.104.22.168 (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 22.214.171.124 (talk) 14:33, 5 December 2010 (UTC)
Is quoting the word 'paraphrase' to paraphrase it?
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 
Is the graphic from Daniel an example of paraphrase? Is it helpful?
I do not think the graphic is a good example of paraphrase. I do not believe it is actually helpful if somebody is trying to understand the concept. But, I can't think of any other graphics to substitute. What do others think? Pete unseth (talk) 16:41, 18 April 2016 (UTC)
