User: What is a dangling construction?

Weegy: You know that you are referring to yourself driving and the sun shining, but if you read this sentence carefully you can see that it actually says that the sun is driving on the highway. This is called a dangling participle.

A dangling construction is a group of words that the writer intends to be a modifier for a noun or phrase, but the noun or phrase is not actually in the sentence. E.g: After taking a three-month bicycle trip through Montana, my dog was happy to see me.
