Misplaced Modifiers

Modifiers are words that show a relationship with other words in the sentence. To be certain the meaning is clear, modifiers must be placed close to the word(s) they modify. Misplaced modifiers make the meaning of a sentence unclear and can even change the meaning of a sentence because the modifiers are too far removed from word(s) they relate to.
