Hi Trevor,

That may have been your experience, but it has little to do with the
dictionary definition of paraphrase.  e.g.
cf.  I was aware of the word, well before I came across anyone using it
My recollection is that Kenneth Taylor used the word himself to describe 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Living_Bible The Living Bible .

Well-reasoned pro-KJV arguments do not require to use any word as a term of
abuse, as they are based on historical knowledge and exegetical grounds. 
NB. That's merely stated briefly here to keep this discussion from going off
on a tangent.

Best regards,
David Haslam
