【5】现在分词的悬垂结构：现在分词短语作状语，其逻辑主语应与句子的主语保持一致。但有些表示说话者语气或态度的分词短语的逻辑主语与句子的主语不一致，它们的逻辑主语可以是除主语以外的任何人或根本不需要说明而独立存在，这些分词短语常常用来作插入语。常见的这些短语有：generally speaking一般说来；judging from/by根据……判断；strictly speaking严格地说；exactly speaking准确地说；frankly speaking坦率地说；roughly speaking粗略地说；briefly speaking简要地说；considering everything考虑到各种情况。如：
Generally speaking，the human race has the information and experience to do this. 一般说来，人们已经有这方面的知识和经验了。

Exactly speaking，they will arrive at 8:14 pm. 准确地说，他们将于下午8点14分到达。
②分词短语的逻辑主语应当是句子的主语，否则，就应在分词短语前面加上逻辑主语。我们不说Looking out of the window，several children were playing about in the garden. 由于Looking的逻辑主语并不是several children，因此主谓逻辑关系不成立，应把这句改成Looking…，I found several children playing…，这样Looking成了I的动作，合乎逻辑关系。
