    paraphrase a sentence

    1) "Yakitori are bite-sized pieces of chicken that have mariented in a sweet, soy-based sauce called teriyaki sauce, and grilled on a skewer."

    This sentence says that Yakitori have mariented in teriyaki sauce. "Sweet" and "soy-based sauce" are modifying the teriyaki sauce, i.e these two adjectives are giving extra information about teriyaki sauce. Am I right?

    Let, "sweet" and "soy-based teriyaki sauce" are two different items. ( I want to say sweet is not now modifying teriyaki sauce, and it is different from teriyaki sauce). Let, to make a dish of yakitori we have to marient the pieces of chicken both in sweet and teriyaki sauce. In this case, which form the sentence 1 will take? i,e how one will paraphrase the sentence 1?

    Teryaki is a sweet sauce. You can't separate "sweet" and "teryaki".

    Re: paraphrase a sentence

    First of all, the words are "marinated" and "marinate". Second, your use of "let" is not correct.

    I am not an expert in teriyaki sauce, but from the original, it seems to be both sweet and soy-based.
