# How to change the font of paragraph titles in memoir?

I'm using the memoir class with the "veelo" chapter style and would like to display the title of a paragraph in italics rather than boldface.

\paragraph{This should be displayed in italics}


I found \chaptitlefont but nothing similar for paragraphs.

The font for a \paragraph title can be changed with \setparaheadstyle.

\documentclass{memoir}

\setparaheadstyle{\itshape} % memoir manual, section 6.6

\begin{document}

\paragraph{This should be in italics}
And this shouldn't.

\end{document}
