I solved a grammar exam recently, and one question got me wondering.
The answer key says that
Stepping inside the church, the large columns supporting the ceiling immediately catch your eye.
is wrong because it contains a dangling participle.
I googled this for an hour, and it seems to me that people are pretty much divided on this.
Some links to people who say not all dangling participles are grammatically wrong:
Do you think dangling participles are grammatically wrong, or do you think it depends on the sentence?
And IF you think Geoffrey K. Pullum and Asya Pereltsvaig are right, can you tell me what you think of the sentence I included?
