Having eaten lunch, I went out.

Is it correct and grammatical to say

I went out having eaten lunch.

1 Answer 1


I believe that 'having eaten lunch' is, here, a descriptive gerund phrase. As such, it can appear in either position, though some people might find it easier to read with an added comma, especially if it were part of a longer sentence:

I went out, having eaten lunch, and street-food sellers immediately assailed me with their cries.
