    1. A participle (or participial construction) is considered to belong to the noun or pronoun that immediately precedes or follows it, and which usually, but not necessarily, is the subject of the sentence.

e.g. Tom, horrified at what he had done, could at first say nothing.

e.g. Jones and Smith came in, followed by their wives.

    1. Sometimes this principle is disregarded and confusion results when a participle is linked to the wrong noun or pronoun, e.g.

The right sentence: When he was climbing down the tree, one of the eggs broke.

The right sentence: When we looked out of the window of our hotel room, we saw that there were lots of mountains.

  • Waiting for a bus a brick fell on my head (The impression is that ‘the brick was waiting for the bus’.)

The right sentence: As I was waiting for the bus, a brick fell on my head.

Подъезжая к станции, на платформе стояло много людей. / Під'їжджаючи до станції, на платформі стояло багато людей.
