I. Do you know what paraphrasing (վերափոխում) is? It is rephrasing a text by replacing words that are similar in meaning or using similar sentence structures with words that are synonyms to the words in the original sentence. Paraphrasing is very often used by students, bloggers, and writers when they don’t want others to know that they have copied an idea from a book or article.
For example, let’s paraphrase these sentences.
The original sentence: I got this instrument without paying for it.
The paraphrased sentence: I got this tool free of charge.
Another example: These results support the claim that musical talent is inherited – many children have some talent, but few are exceptionally talented.
The paraphrased sentence: These results show that children acquire their musical capabilities from their parents. Many children have some talent, but very few are especially gifted.
