|Portuguese term or phrase: ao mesmo tempo em que|
|Conclui-se que a reparação do traço de nasalidade na integração dos empréstimos, **ao mesmo tempo em que** inova ao adaptar oclusivas como nasais, confirma duas particularidades de Dâw, que são: a preferência da língua por nasais no contexto de vogal nasal e a resistência à mudança de sonoridade na efetivação dos processos fonológicos|
It can be concluded that the repair of the nasal feature in loanword integration simultaneous to the innovation of adapting stops as nasals, confirms two process unique to Dâw: the preference for nasals in the context of a nasal vowel, and the resistance to any change in sonority when its phonological processes are triggered.
|while on the one hand|
Sometimes I find that this expression is interchangeable with "at the same time," depending on the context. The point here is that I would turn "inova" into a noun, and this intro fits better for the purpose:
"...Therefore, the repair of the nasal feature in loanword integration, while on the one hand it is an innovation in that stops are adapted as nasals, it also confirms to two process that are unique to Dâw - namely: preference for nasals in the context of a nasal vowel, and the resistance to any change in sonority when its phonological processes are triggered.

|Thanks! I'm going with this take:|
Therefore, the repair of the nasal feature in loanword integration can be understood as an innovation (given that stops are adapted as nasals) and also as confirmation of two processes unique to Dâw - namely: preference for nasals in the context of a nasal vowel, and the resistance to any change in sonority when its phonological processes are triggered.
