gr. 12 english - Double Negatives and Modifiers

posted by .

I'm going to ask for a little help tonight. Does the following sentence have double negatives, misplaced or dangling modifiers?

"I left my agenda in a restaurant which had all my important dates in it."

    There are no negatives -- so that rules that out.

    Do you see the misplaced modifier?

  • gr. 12 english - Double Negatives and Modifiers -

    Yes, I found it. It was, "all my important dates in it."

    Next question. Does this sentence have
    double negatives, and how can I revise it?

    "In my experience, performing in front of a crowd is not hardly as daunting as it seems."

    The entire misplaced modifier is "which had all my important dates in it."

    Yes, the second sentence has a double negative -- "not hardly." Just omit one of those words.
    . . . is not as daunting as . . .
    or
    . . . is hardly as daunting as . . .
