The Limits of Paraphrasing

By Matthew

While a good paraphrase can do a lot to fix and enhance a sentence or paragraph, there are limits to what a standard paraphraser can achieve.

Consider the following sentences:

  1. I want to use the google mtranslator to go spannish to english.
  2. I want spanish to eng.
  3. I want to use the gagle translate for espanish to english.
  4. I want to google translate anglish to spanish.

For each of these sentences, most people would be able to understand what the writer is attempting to say. They want to translate from English to Spanish or vice versa.

Let’s see what a paraphrasing tool might return on a first try, in a standard mode, each one an example of paraphrase:

  1. I want to use google mtranslator to translate Spanish to English.
  2. I want Spanish to English.
  3. I want to use the gagle translator from spanish to english.
  4. I want to use Google to translate from English to Spanish.

Among these paraphrasing examples, only the second and fourth are completely usable in their paraphrased form. The other two require spelling modifications of “mtranslator” and “gagle.” Such examples illustrate why it’s always important to check your paraphrased text, accept only what you agree with, and throw out what you don’t. Fortunately, our paraphraser has 15 modes to choose from, helping you clarify, simplify, formalize, smooth out and do many many more things to your text. Although you may find that the first paraphrase you get doesn't fix everything or make it sound exactly as you want, you can try different modes to get different results.

To learn more, check out this paraphrase how to guide; it's always good to see examples of paraphrase, so you know what to expect.

From keywords to paragraphs

Generating paragraphs with unique ideas can be challenging, and too often writers get stuck at this stage of the writing process. With our paragraph tool, you can enter keywords and let our AI generate paragraphs for you, so that you can have something to work with, refine the output, and become more engaged in your writing.

A paragraph generator creates links between your ideas, such that the output is sensible, unique, and stimulating, very close to what you would expect a thoughtful human paragraph writer to produce.

Paragraph makers are nice, but what about a short story generator? Because our AI is generalized, it serves a story generator, an essay generator, a poem generator, and much more. To generate compelling stories, you should provide the story generator with useful keywords from which it can develop plot elements, including characters, setting details, and any situational information. To generate reasonably good essays, you should likewise provide the essay maker with details around argumentative positions and any other pertinent ideas. If you more specifically want an introduction paragraph generator or conclusion paragraph generator, you can provide starter text and keywords that will best enable our essay creator to produce them.
