But does the above sentence make you wonder about
the danger of dangling modifiers?
Does the question above make you wonder about the
danger of confusing adjectives with prepositions?
What do adjectives have to do with this? "After tripping over a shoelace
that came untied" is a prepositional phrase and indeed constitutes a
dangling modifier in the sentence.
Interestingly, that doesn't bother me at all. But I was momentarily
confused which "if" is missing in the rest of Tony's sentence:
| ... this article makes me
| wonder if I was better at math I could avoid this danger:
It should be:
... wonder if if I was better at math I could avoid this danger.
... wonder whether if I was better at math I could avoid this danger.
