Dangling Participle

A friend of a friend has a little boy named Jerend.

Word nerds that we are, we kind of want to cross out his name and write Gerund.

And then ask his parents if they know they named him a part of speech, and spelled it wrong at that.

It’s probably the mother’s maiden name or something entirely reasonable.

Nonetheless, my weirdo brain wanders like I’m in a candy store of grammar terms.

“Hi, these are my sons, Subject and Predicate. And our dog, Dangling Participle.”
