I have a sentence:

We would like to point out in XXX(a paper) a same result of YYY(YYY is a statement) is done, with a different condition, (but)without using ZZZ method.

My question:

  1. I feel weird by using a same result of YYY. What I want to say is in XXX paper, a result YYY is also proved. Any suggestions?
  2. I want to emphasize that in XXX paper, it proves YYY without using ZZZ. Can I use but to emphasize without? Or should I use however or something else?

    Three things. "Same" requires "the". Results are obtained, not done. "However" is the same as "but". Aug 14, 2015 at 15:49
  • I think that without the "but" it would be a simple statement, so if you do want to emphasize, "but" would provide that. Aug 14, 2015 at 15:53

I would use slightly different phrase structure:

We would like to point out in PaperXXX that ResultYYY was achieved using different conditions, even without using MethodZZZ.
