Paraphrasing

October 24, 2012

Yesterday in Feature Writing, my Prof. showed us this great travel story. It was about the writers experience in Cuba, where he was visitng his wife’s family. There was a point in the story where he mentioned speaking with his grandmother in law; instead of quoting her broken english, he paraphrased. I found this so interesting! I have never seen anyone paraphrase in the language/grammar that was spoken before. I found it very affective and hope to use this style in my next feature writing/ digital journalism piece.

 

ex: This is the corner where my father have the bodega.
