1) She held the angry child struggling in her lap.
2) He held the man struggling against the wall.
Are these sentences grammatically correct?
Are they idiomatic?
Who is struggling in each sentence?
Does 'in her lap' go with 'held' or with 'struggling'?
Does 'against the wall' modify 'held' or 'struggling'?
I think 'struggling' is dangling in both sentences, but the sentences
are understandable... She held the child in her lap while the child was
struggling and He held the man against the wall while the man was struggling.
