dangling modifiers
Avoid modifiers that do not refer clearly and logically to some word in the sentence.
Dangling: Taking our seats, the game started. (Taking does not refer to the subject, game or any other word in the sentence.)
Correct: Taking our seats, we watched the opening of the game. (Taking refers to we, the subject of the sentence.)
