Frequently Asked Questions

Are paraphrasing, rephrasing, and rewording the same thing?

While paraphrasing, rephrasing, and rewording all involve altering text, they each have distinct purposes and lead to different outcomes.

Paraphrasing means taking someone else’s ideas and expressing them in your own words. Its primary goal is to simplify complex ideas for better understanding without changing the original message.

Rephrasing is about modifying the structure or word choice within a text to improve clarity or impact, maintaining the original intent.

Rewording is similar to rephrasing but often focuses more on changing specific words to synonyms or altering the phrasing for clarity, without necessarily restructuring the entire text.

Each method is valuable for refining text, whether the aim is to make the message clearer, enhance the way ideas are presented, or adjust the content for a different audience or purpose. Just don't forget to always to cite the original source wherever you use a rework text to avoid plagiarism.

What are the steps of rewording text?

The most efficient way to reword text is to use a free rewording tool like the one at the top of this page. To use this tool, paste in your source text, choose how you'd like your text to sound, then click the "Reword it" button.

If you’d like to rewrite text from scratch, you'll want to follow a few steps to ensure that the new version maintains the original meaning while being expressed in your own words. Here's a streamlined process:

1. Understand the original text by reading it carefully.

2. Identify the main ideas to keep the core message.

3. Rewrite using your own words. Use synonyms and alter the sentence structure for freshness.

4. Compare your version with the original to ensure accuracy and that you’ve captured the essential points.

5. Use Grammarly's plagiarism checker to guarantee originality.

6. Cite the source to acknowledge the original author and avoid unintentional plagiarism.

Is using a rewording tool considered cheating?

Using a rewording tool isn't considered cheating if properly disclosed and cited. These tools can be useful for saving time or finding new ways to express ideas in your unique style. However, students should keep in mind that institutions and professors often have their own rules about using rewriting tools. If you're using one for schoolwork, check with your professor first and always credit the original source of your ideas. Otherwise, you risk plagiarizing.

How is rewording different from plagiarizing?

Rewording involves taking an existing piece of text and altering its wording to express the same ideas in your unique voice.

Plagiarizing means taking someone else’s work—words, ideas, or findings—and presenting them as your own without proper attribution.

Grammarly’s citation tool makes it easy to correctly cite sources so you can comply with academic and professional guidelines. You can also use Grammarly’s plagiarism checker to ensure your writing is original. It scans your writing against academic databases and 90 billion online texts and flags any unoriginal wording.
