Some sentences may be grammatically correct but difficult to read:
➤ You need to create a sweet potato dish but not a sweet potato dish.
The problem here is 'sweet potato': it can mean a type of potato or potato sweetened. While some may consider it strange to sweeten potato, the confusion creates a possibility; their may be a dish which requires sweetening potato.
By rephrasing, we can improve clarity so the reader does not need to read it two or three time: eliminating 'sweet potato' in one clause allows us to achieve this:
➤ We are using sweet potatoes to create a savoury dish.
➤ You need to create a savoury sweet potato dish.
Using savoury helps clarify 'sweet potato'.
Is their another way in which to clarify the sentence?
