Grammarly is an indispensable AI writing assistant that millions of bloggers, students, teachers, marketers, and online publishers use to correct their punctuation, spelling, grammar and writing style.
But, they’re not using Grammarly for paraphrasing content, and learn below exactly why (and what to do about it- a free replacement to Grammarly is available).

Can Grammarly Paraphrase?
“To paraphrase is to to repeat something written or spoken using different words, often in a humorous form or in a simpler and shorter form that makes the original meaning clearer”. Source (https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/paraphrase
When paraphrasing content you want to pay attention to 4 R’s.
Read – You should be able to understand the main thought running through the content piece;
Restate – You need to be able to cover the crucial points in your own words;
Recheck – You should check that all the main points are sufficiently covered;
Repair – You need to make corrections to the paraphrased text as needed.
So, to get back to your question:
Can Grammarly paraphrase? And if it can’t, what can you do about it?
Even though Grammarly can rewrite whole sentences, to make them more stylish and grammatically correct, it lacks the full paraphrasing capability of being able to rephrase entire paragraphs (like Quillbot) or entire articles (like WordAI).
That doesn’t mean you can’t use Grammarly to paraphrase content more effectively.

How to Combine Grammarly and Quillbot to Paraphrase Content for Free (Tutorial)?
Unlike Grammarly, Quillbot is a free AI-powered content paraphrasing tool. It can rewrite sentences, paragraphs, and even entire articles and blog posts (read my Quillbot review to learn more about it).
You can paraphrase quality content for free by combining the writing assistant capabilities of Grammarly and Quillbot’s powerful AI rewriting and rewarding features.
Here’s how step by step:
First, you’ll need to copy and paste the content you want to paraphrase into Quillbot (note: I will take some content from my Grammarly free trial guide).
Remember, Quillbot is an AI-powered tool, and no AI is perfect. This means that not always will it generate content that is 100% ready for human consumption.
Now, even though the Grammarly Chrome extension works within the Quillbot editor, you need to copy the paraphrased text from Quillbot and paste it into the Grammarly editor.
Then Grammarly will automatically highlight misspellings, and wrong punctuation and suggest better synonyms according to the content’s context (Grammarly free version does this);
and you’ll also get writing style improvements (Grammarly Premium does this) that Quillbot had to improvise on during paraphrasing.
Pro tip: listen, paraphrasing content with a combo of Grammarly and Quillbot works, but it’s cumbersome to do it all the time.
Instead, my advice is for you to get Quillbot Premium which is extremely cheap (only $9.95/mo), and use it to paraphrase content with no limits.
Quillbot also has a grammar and style checker which is on par with what Grammarly Premium can do for you. So no need to invest in a more expensive tool if you can save money with the more affordable one.
$6.66.mo ($39.95 billed every 6 months)
$4.17/mo ($49.95 billed every 12 months)
Remember, you can still use Grammarly’s free extension on all popular browsers and it works perfectly within the Quillbot dashboard (as Quillbot is a cloud-based app).
The premium version of Grammarly does not paraphrase.
Grammarly is not a content paraphraser.
#3- How to Paraphrase a Sentence With Grammarly?
Paraphrasing sentences is a Grammarly Premium feature. When you paste your content into the Premium Grammarly editor, this tool will scan the text and identify complex sentences that can be shortened and rewritten to sound better.
Grammarly Premium will give you the option to rephrase such sentences with a single click.
#4- How to Paraphrase a Paragraph With Grammarly?
Grammarly can’t paraphrase paragraphs, so the only way to reword entire paragraphs is to do it sentence by sentence with Grammarly Premium.
It’s both cumbersome and ineffective.
Instead, it’s better to use Quillbot to paraphrase paragraphs as that’s the tool’s specialty. You get excellently rewritten content with proper punctuation and all the bells and whistles.
#5- Can You Paraphrase Emails in Gmail With Grammarly?
