Not knowing a word that is key
for the message you’re trying to communicate
is going to break the conversation.
However, that won’t happen if you know how to work your way around it
This is basically what paraphrasing is.
For example, you might describe a profession
“The person who works in a hospital and
helps a doctor.
The other person then will know you’re talking about a nurse.
Maybe I’ll say the place where people go
when they want to buy things.
Oh I know what you mean a store
No, it’s bigger and you can buy all kinds
of different things there especially food
Oh, a supermarket
paraphrase when you can’t remember a word
to convey more subtle details
as well as to organize and manage what you sya.
