The document class I'm using (ieeetran) typesets paragraphs as in the following:

-------
[space here] a) The Paragraph Title In Italics:[space here]The quick brown fox jumped
over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox
jumped over the lazy dog.
-------

(actually, it doesn't matter exactly how they're typeset, since...)

I want paragraphs like in the article document class - with no indentation before the title, with boldface instead of italics, and with no numbering, thank you very much!

Besides creating a modified document class, what's a reasonable way to achieve this?

    When submitting to IEEE, the chance is high that they revert your changes. A journal should have a consistent look, throughout. – Johannes_B Mar 28 '15 at 13:36
  • @Johannes_B: But I don't want their 'structural' paragraph, I want an 'unstructued paragraph' – einpoklum Mar 28 '15 at 13:52

    A theoretical answer can be given in a comment, copy the definition of paragraphs from the cls and redefine it in the document preamble. Or use package titlesec to do the redefinition with a nice interface. With a MWE, a ready to use solution can be presented. – Johannes_B Mar 28 '15 at 14:05

    The most reasonable way, barring other information, is: simply use article if you want it to look like article. – Paul Gessler Mar 28 '15 at 14:28

    If you aren't submitting to IEEE, you are better off using a standard class (e.g. article). If you are submitting to IEEE, modifying the paragraph style is certainly pointless: journals don't allow authors to determine the way their articles are typeset. Content, sure. Format is the journal's business and they impose a consistent style for all articles. – cfr Mar 29 '15 at 3:37

as Johannes_B said

\makeatletter
\def\theparagraph{\thesubsubsection.\@arabic\c@paragraph}
\def\paragraph{\@startsection{paragraph}{4}{\z@}%
                                    {3.25ex \@plus1ex \@minus.2ex}%
                                    {-1em}%
                                    {\normalfont\normalsize\bfseries}}
\makeatother
