  • ...and then I arrived home and fell onto the couch covered in sweat.
  • Was the couch covered in sweat?
  • No!
  • Then that sentence is an example of a misplaced modifier.
  • What does that mean?
  • There are also dangling modifiers. " A dangling modifier is a word or phrase that modifies a word not clearly stated in the sentence. "
  • "A misplaced modifier is a word, phrase, or clause that is improperly separated from the word it modifies / describes"
  • OHHHH I GET IT!
  • EXACTLY!
  • So the correct way to say that sentence is: covered in sweat, I arrived home and fell onto the couch.
  • I agree and you're welcome!
  • It's starting to get late now, maybe we should head home. Thanks for teaching me about misplaced and dangling modifiers!
