Friday Round-Up - #161


Laurel, over at Laurel's Leaves, defines and demystifies misplaced modifiers. Now, there's a mouthful! I always learn a lot from her. Do you struggle with this grammar pitfall?

Have a great weekend.

Do I struggle with grammar pitfall?? Haha, all the time! Thanks for this post Susan, I mentioned you on my blog by the way.

Hi Marja -

If those of us struggle when English is our native language, I can only imagine how difficult it must be for you. :)

I'll pop by your blog.

Blessings,
Susan

Hi, Susan! I have few items in grammar that trip me up, but I must say, I'm pretty proud of my handle of gramatical issues. BUT, I promise I have plenty of other pitfalls!!

My time teaching high school and college composition forced me to master grammar. The misplaced modifier is a big problem! Laurel is good with explaining points like this.

Hi Rosslyn -

I guess you'd need to be skilled in this area if you're teaching it. Those misplaced modifiers are tricky dudes.

Blessings,
Susan :)
