In a past exam on technical writing, we were required to rewrite the italicized part of the following clause using nominalization, that is, turning verb phrases to noun phrases:
"[...] this approach has the ability to also recognize patterns that are modified from the way they are normally presented. [...]"
I might try rewriting it as "the way of their normal presentation." This sounds a bit weird to me, and I'm not sure if it is common to put a noun phrase after "the way of" in this meaning of "way".
How would you answer this problem?
EDIT: I misquoted the question a bit: the word presented was represented originally.
