45. , participle is considered to belong to the noun or pronoun that i))ediately precedes it
#which usually, but not necessarily, is the sub+ect of the )ain %erb$.
t The boy7 climbin' the tree to 'et birds, e''s7 had a bad 6all.
- &6 there is no nounDpronoun in this position the participle is considered to belon' to the sub@ect
o6 the 6ollowin' main :erb:
8limbin' the tree to 'et birds, e''s7 the boy had a bad 6all.
Sometimes this principle is disre'arded and con6usion results:
8limbin' down the tree7 one o6 the e''s broke.
This word order makes it appear that the e'' was climbin'7 which is nonsense. A participle
linked in this way to the wron'
nounDpronoun is said to be 2misrelated2. The sentence should be
8limbin' down the tree he broke one o6 the e''s or
As he was climbin' down the tree one o6 the e''s broke.
