  18. 18. Dangling and Misplaced Modifiers Modifiers (just like adjectives) are meant to describe a noun in the sentence. Sometimes… Modifiers are not placed appropriately OR There may not be anyone/thing to receive the modifying OR they are too far away from the noun they are describingThis leads to an unclear and silly sounding sentence…and we wouldn’t want that, of course.
  19. 19. For Example…Sizzling on the grill, Theo smelled the salmon. What is your modifier? Sizzling on the grillNow ask yourself this…WHO OR WHAT IS DOING THIS SIZZLING ON THE GRILL? Theo? No!

  24. 24. Other Types of Modifiers Does this sound weird to you? The magazine is wrinkled from shower steam on the bathroom floor. Where is this magazine? On the bathroom floorHOWEVER…this sentence says that the STEAM is on the bathroom floor. How can this be revised? The magazine on the bathroom floor is wrinkled from shower steam.
  25. 25. Prepositional Phrases as Modifiers Prepositional Phrases tell you either: How, When, or Where (ADV) OR Which one? (ADJ) Before class, Rudolph begged his friends for a pencil. When did Rudolph do his begging? Before class The note from George confessed that he had eaten the leftover pizza. Which note? The one from George (ADJECTIVE)Just a head’s up—you will NEVER find the subject of the sentence in the prepositional phrase

  28. 28. Participles Participles come in two varieties: past and present. They are two of the five forms or principal parts that every verb has.Verb Simple Simple Past Past Present Infinitive Present Participle ParticipleGiggle Giggle Giggled Giggled Giggling To giggleBring Bring(s) Brought Brought Bringing To BringSing Sine Sung Sung Singing To Sing Another way of saying present participle is present progressive, or that it is currently happening. It will always end with –ing 100% of the time.
  29. 29. ParticiplesParticiples have 3 functions: As part of a verb As an adjective As a noun AS A VERB EXAMPLE: With a broom, Mrs. Olsen was beating our alligator over the head in an attempt to retrieve her poodle from the reptile’s jaws. Was = helping verb; beating = present participle. AS AN ADJECTIVE EXAMPLE: The crying baby drew a long breath and sucked in a spider crouching in the corner of the crib. Which baby? The crying baby. Which spider? The one that was crouching in the corner. EXAMPLE AS A NOUN: We gave bungee jumping a chance.
  30. 30. Underline the Participles1. The mangled pair of sunglasses, bruised face, broken arm, and bleeding knees meant Janet had taken another spill on her mountain bike.2. Sneezing exhausts Steve, who requires eight tissues and twenty-seven Gesundheits before he is done.3. Our pet alligator should have been eating Gator Chow, crunchy nuggets that Billy leaves for him in a bowl.4. Joelle bit her tongue instead of criticizing her prom dates powder blue tuxedo.
  31. 31. How did you do?1. The mangled pair of sunglasses, bruised face, broken arm, and bleeding knees meant Janet had taken another spill on her mountain bike.2. Sneezing exhausts Steve, who requires eight tissues and twenty-seven Gesundheits before he is done.3. Our pet alligator should have been eating Gator Chow, crunchy nuggets that Billy leaves for him in a bowl.4. Joelle bit her tongue instead of criticizing her prom dates powder blue tuxedo.
  32. 32. Pronouns and Antecedents Pronouns can replaced another noun. Antecedent is what the pronoun refers to. Examples: Casey is a yellow lab. Sheis my brother’s dog. Casey=Antecedent She=Pronoun Harry Potteris a popular series. They are my favorite books.
  33. 33. Pronouns and AntecedentsWhen writing, we have to make sure that pronouns and antecedents agree.They must agree in the following ways: Personrefers to the quality of being. Numberis singular (one) and plural (many). Genderis masculine or feminine.
  34. 34. Example: Incorrect:If a person wants to be successful, you have to eat lots of spinach.The pronoun (you) and the antecedent (person) do not match. Correct: If a person wants to be successful, he or she has to eat lots of spinach. ORIf you want to be successful, you have to eat lots of spinach.
  35. 35. Choose the best way to revise the followingsentences to show agreement between a pronoun andits antecedent. Some may already be correct.1. Is everyone happy with their gift?2. One of the boys had tears in their eyes.3. Everyone has his or her own way of organizing.4. A person needs to learn how to read or you will not do very well in school.
  36. 36. How did you do?1. Is everyone happy with their gift? INCORRECT everyone/his or her2. One of the boys had tears in their eyes. INCORRECT One/his3. Everyone has his or her own way of organizing. CORRECT4. A person needs to learn how to read or you will not do very well in school. INCORRECT Person/he or she OR you/you
  37. 37. Active Voice How dare you! I would never!The subject is doing the verb Example: Casey is tearing up the pillow.(Pillow is our direct object)
  38. 38. So…What’s Passive Voice? The direct object becomes the subject. Active Voice: Casey is tearing up the pillowPassive Voice:The pillow is being torn up by Casey.Passive voice is not typically used because it may be unclear; however, there are times when it is the better choice.
  39. 39. Turn These Passive Voice Sentences into Active Voice Sentences1. The juicy hamburger was eaten by Giorgio.2. It was heard by me through the grapevine.3. The 1812 Overture was written by Tchaikovsky.4. An iguana is being held by me.5. Frankenstein’s monster was liked by no one.
  40. 40. How Did You Do?1. Giorgio ate the juicy hamburger.2. I heard it through the grapevine.3. Tchaikovsky wrote The 1812 Overture.4. I am holding an iguana.5. No one liked Frankenstein’s monster.
