Is it correct if I split the original sentence below (in bold) into two and then rephrased as follows?
As I am late, I will take a taxi.
I am late. Therefore, I will take a taxi.
Is 'rephrased' correctly used in the top sentence in bold?
Or should I write as: Is it correct if I split the original sentence in bold into two and then rephrase it as follows?
