I am asked the following the question:

Question: Why are your results important?


  1. For segmenting and classifying a stream of documents dynamically without a fixed training dataset

  2. For segmenting and dynamically classifying document streams without a fixed training dataset

Which answer is correct to you? Grammatically, the word dynamically is intended to be related to classifying not segmenting.

1 Answer 1


Both are grammatical, but in your first version, dynamically can be interpreted as referring to segmenting as well. The sentence is ambiguous.

So in order to avoid misinterpretation, your second sentence is much better.

    In fact, 1 is not even ambiguous. It only allows the unintended reading.
