In the following sentence, what word does the participial phrase modify?
Everyone in the annex heard her screaming loudly
Participles act as adjectives and modify nouns or pronouns.
What do you think the participle modifies?
Well a Participial phrase is a phrase made up of a participle with its modifiers, such as adverbs, and objects or complements. So I think the answer is annex?
Really? Was the annex screaming?
OH haha I thought of objects and I thought of Annex. Its her.
Yes, the participle modifies "her."
Thank you so much.
You're very welcome.
