Paraphrasing, Quoting, and Summarizing

Paraphrasing means you are using the author or writers ideas but using different words that they used for the resource that they wrote. Quoting means you are giving credit to the author or writer who wrote the resource. Summarizing is putting the whole story together into your own words. All three of these topics give credit to the author or creator of the idea that you are using. An example of summarizing are like the "Tree Little Pigs" The Three Little Pigs tried to have protection against the wolf that is trying to "get sugar" the pigs keep building better and better protection before the wolf can eat them. An example of quoting is "What goes up must come down" (Then you would add credit to the person who wrote this or thought of this idea). An example of paraphrasing is what you throw up will eventually fall down.

What is Plagiarism?

Plagiarism is when someone is taking credit on purpose or on accident of someone else's work. You can avoid this by citing your website that you used or the source you used. To avoid plagiarism you have to say the authors name, cite the page number, give credit, make sure to have some in-text citations, and a bibliography you have to have a new page that states sources that you use.

In MLA style, referring to the works of others in your text is done by using what is known as parenthetical citation. This method involves placing relevant source information in parentheses after a quote or a paraphrase.

General Guidelines

  • The source information required in a parenthetical citation depends (1.) upon the source medium (e.g. Print, Web, DVD) and (2.) upon the source’s entry on the Works Cited (bibliography) page.
  • Any source information that you provide in-text must correspond to the source information on the Works Cited page. More specifically, whatever signal word or phrase you provide to your readers in the text, must be the first thing that appears on the left-hand margin of the corresponding entry in the Works Cited List.

Some in-text citation basics and examples are...


In-text citations: Author-page style

MLA format follows the author-page method of in-text citation. This means that the author's last name and the page number(s) from which the quotation or paraphrase is taken must appear in the text, and a complete reference should appear on your Works Cited page. The author's name may appear either in the sentence itself or in parentheses following the quotation or paraphrase, but the page number(s) should always appear in the parentheses, not in the text of your sentence. For example:

Wordsworth stated that Romantic poetry was marked by a "spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings" (263).

Romantic poetry is characterized by the "spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings" (Wordsworth 263).

Wordsworth extensively explored the role of emotion in the creative process (263).
