I often work with writers who need to integrate the words of other writers in their texts and who are unsure when to quote, when to paraphrase, and when to summarize. Each way of integrating the words of other writers functions differently and sends different messages to readers. If you want to be purposeful in your use of other writers’ words, you’ll need to understand how each technique works.
