Practical Exercise: Paraphrasing Text in an Unusual Style

The objective of this task is to enhance your ability to paraphrase and adapt style using ChatGPT. You will learn how to apply new styles to familiar texts and understand how this can change the perception of the original message.


Take an excerpt from any text - it can be anything, a novel, a scientific article, a blog post, a newspaper clipping, or a technical guide - and paraphrase it using a style that is uncharacteristic for that text.


  1. Identify the style in which you want to paraphrase the text.

  2. Use ChatGPT to assist you with the paraphrasing. Remember to specify the style you wish to use in your request.

  3. Once you have received the paraphrased text, compare it to the original. Check if it retains the main message of the original text.


Let's take instructions for installing any application:

"To start using the app, first install it on your device. Then open the app and enter your login details. If you don't have an account yet, press the 'Create Account' button and follow the instructions."

Now, ask ChatGPT to paraphrase this text, adding artistic devices:

"In the realm of software, a new app awaits its moment to animate your device. First, it must be planted like a seed in fertile soil through installation. Upon opening the app, you become its custodian by entering your login credentials. If you are not yet part of this digital community, the 'Create Account' button is your portal. Through this portal, you shall follow the path of instructions."

This task will help improve your paraphrasing skills and allow you to look at different writing styles in a new way. Remember, there is no single "right" way to complete this task - the main thing is that it is useful and educational for you.
