Paraphrasing self-test

After looking for a way to help students test their paraphrasing skills, I've modified what real programmers have done to create a test-your-skills-at-paraphrasing page (and the links to the folks who really deserve credit are at the bottom of it). It won't cover errors such as borrowing metaphors, but it should give a reality check to someone who thinks that replacing every third word is appropriate. As usually happens with my webpages, I wait until I see someone really clever who creates something useful and then tweak it a bit.

Yes, anyone's free to link to that page for teaching purposes. Oh, I love Creative Commons licensing!
