Consider you are asked to summarize a discussion between two students where they are not on the same page about an issue. I came up with two sentences.
First, a sentence with non-defining relative clause:
- The man, who disagrees with the woman, believes that universities should not raise the tuition fees.
I don't want to use such clauses. I want to use phrases implying the same thing. For instance:
- The man, in contrast to the woman, believes that universities should not raise the tuition fees.
In this context, I came up with these phrases:
- as opposed to
- in (sharp) contrast to
- on the contrary
Does the sentence #2 make sense?
Would you suggest some phrases? Please note that, I want to put that phrase between two commas. I guess (I don't know) that is called apposition which is somehow similar to non-defining relative clauses- first example.
