Unformatted text preview: The writer has determined that only the comparison between movies and stillflash pictures is important enough to repeat, and rephrased to emphasize that comparison. Even though the writer does not use the exact words, the paraphrased detail still comes from Chandra and Avedisian, who listed six different sources to defend their point. An author who uses Chandra and Avedisian's statement is ethically obligated to give them credit. Without proper documentation, the statement would at best function as mere opinion, and would be of little or no professional value; at worst, it would be plagiarism. (See below on Plagiarism versus Paraphrase) 3. Direct quotation is not used much in technical writing. Why? Unlike in other fields, such as the study of literature, the exact wording in technical writing is not as significant as the ideas that are being communicated. However, occasionally, you might encounter something written so well, you just have to quote it. Here is a sample below: Previous studies did not address this issue, however, because “they neglected any effects of liquid surface tension and viscosity, so that their results are applicable only to the initial stages of droplet impact, when these forces are negligible compared to their inertial effects [at the time of impact]” (Pasandideh-Fard et al. 1996:650). The writer took a piece of information directly from page 650, reproduced it word-for-word, and gave appropriate credit to the original authors. Issues with Direct Quotation : There are a number of issues to consider when using direct quotation: 1. Avoid “Dropped Quotes”: Dropped quotes occur when the writer just “drops” a sentence from a source in the middle of his/her own writing. For example, Accessible work areas are key to making the lab accessible to disabled users. “Work areas shall be Online Handbook / Accurate Documentation / Using Sources, Paraphrase, and Plagiarism 2. Paraphrase: typically involves the summary of a single part of another author’s work. 3. Direct quotation is not used much in technical writing. Why? Unlike in other fields, such as the study of literature, the exact wording in technical writing is not as significant as the ideas that are being communicated. However, occasionally, you might encounter something written so well, you just have to quote it. Here is a sample below: From genre to document design … or what does it look like?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
