    Grammar - Dangling Modifiers

    Discussion in 'Word Mechanics' started by Torana, Feb 18, 2008.

    Here are some valuable links to some palces you can learn about dangling modifiers. I think that there is some really great info and thought I'd share the links as they might help someone else out here in the forum.

    I can't sit and explain what a dangling modifier is so please don't ask me to. :p

    Well yeah hope these few links help.

    Dangling Modifiers - this one if you take a good look around the site you should find plenty of other information as well.

    Have fun.

    I often find myself passing up reviews on stories, annoyed by many dangling modifiers. ;)

    I loved those links. The Chinese poem of 92 'shi's was also pretty good:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lion-Eating_Poet_in_the_Stone_Den
