In academic writing, you will need to cite other people’s work in order to offer concrete support and evidence for your arguments. One way to do this is by using paraphrase. This sample essay includes a source text and an extract from a student essay which paraphrases ideas from the source text. The comments show you how to use paraphrase in academic writing.

WRITING TASK

Read the source text, an extract from a book by Smytheville. Then read the extract from a student essay which paraphrases some of the ideas from the source.

SOURCE TEXT

Turning now to genre, this is essentially a term to cover the type of text and its expected readership, or audience. Also included in the concept of genre are other characteristics such as conventions of layout, text type or graphical elements. An illustration of the centrality and inter-relatedness of these elements may be made: that of the artistic or linguistic project in which one genre is represented with the characteristics of another. In artistic terms, this might be, for example, the cover of an adult novel presented in the style and format of that of a children’s novel, or vice-versa. Linguistically, an example could be an extract from a legal document or letter from a bank presented like the packaging of a box of breakfast cereal. These examples serve to illustrate how powerfully genres exist in our minds, in terms of our expectations regarding text type, visual representation and expected audience.
