Next up in the grammar series: phrases!
You might notice that I didn’t cover participial phrases (sometimes a.k.a. participle phrases) in this video. I thought about it, but a) it would have made this video a lot longer, and b) I’ll cover them when I talk about dangling participles in the editing series (coming soon!) If you JUST! CAN’T! WAIT! for participial phrases, check out the links I’ve included below.
