to Read And Paraphrase according to our teacher. This is a very long assignment in which I dread. My hand always ends up hurting. Private schools suck.
Mr. Evans: Okay your assignment for the day is to RAP pages 1-200.
Mr. Evans: Yep, due tomorrow.
Class: You suck.
Mr. Evans: You have to, but if you're a failure that means you're gonna be successful in my book.
Kelli: I hate you.
Mr. Evans: Oh I love it when you rebel. You'll be successful.
V.I.P. is an acronym for "Vanilla Ice Paraphrase." It means changing one small part of something and claiming it as your own. Just like Vanilla Ice did in his hit song "Ice Ice Baby." He used a another songs melody and claimed it as his own because of one small change.
"Shall I compare thee to a summer's morning?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of June,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date".
When a person is confronted with the plagiarism of the poem above the accuser might say, "Just because you V.I.P. a poem doesn't make it yours!"
|3.||Quote the Stoat|
To tell a fib or to make something up.
To paraphrase so outrageously that all likeness to the original comment is lost.
To invent statistics from thin air.
Don't quote the stoat with me. - Said to someone you believe to be telling a lie.
I might be Quoting the stoat here, but 87.3% of all statistics are made up on the spot. - Said when you are inventing statistics from thin air.
The musical equivalent of a paraphrase. Although usually used for parody purposes, paralyrics can also be used to illustrate a point or to re-create a love song for that special someone. Pronounced pa-ra-le-rik.
"they see me all white n' nerdy" or a paralyric from any other Weird Al Yankovic song.
Tank version of the word paraphrase by people lacking in englishness/engrish
There are too many quotes to remember, I think I'm going to Power phrase
Similar to a paraphrase, but only as applies to quotes.
To paraquote Shakespeare "A rose is a rose no matter what you call it."
An adjective used to describe basically anyone attractive. SEE, pretty people MUST be shallow, huh? In a lot of cases, this is true, but not because of their appearance. A lot of people who don't fit society's standard of pretty are as shallow as a petri dish.
Also used to describe people who can pick out any guy/girl to ask out or talk to just by looking at them.
"I am NOT shallow, I like people with depth!! Nevermind that my main concern is how I look and appear to other people!"
-Paraphrase of speech given by an undeniably deep person... well the true stuff that wasn't said, anyways.
