The WijiPedia entry on Paraphrase has a useful but non-technical
explanaiton of the concept,

However, many critics of Bible translations use an entirely different (and
techniically specious) defintion of "anything that isn't or doesn't sound
like the KJV". Such critics will use the word as a term of abuse when
describing a translation that they don't like, which only shows up to us
linguists/translators/interpreters how much the critics *don't* know about
