Misplaced Modifiers

A modifer is another word for an adverb. An adverb is used to answer a question about the verb. When inserting an adverb, be sure to place it in the correct position so that your sentence makes sense. If the adverb or adverbial phrase is not correctly placed, the sentence meaning becomes skewed. Be sure to read over the sentence after it’s written to ensure quality.
