That's Not What I Meant at All
Take a look at hilarious examples of why we need to understand misplaced
and dangling modifiers (including the dangling participles you talked about
in fifth grade).
Should we say "We only ate cereal for breakfast" or "We ate only cereal
for breakfast"? What about "Only we ate cereal for breakfast"? Can we say,
"Walking home from the party, my keys fell out of my pocket"?
How about "After finishing my homework, my dog ate it"? What about that
road sign that reads "Prepare to stop when flashing"?
If these sentences sound fine to you, then you're in the right place.
