I recently came across a sentence that goes “As a father, it's my job to respect my son's opinion.” In this sentence, the prepositional phrase “as a father” is describing me (the noun “I”). However, this prepositional phrase is not placed right before the noun “my”. Is this sentence ungrammatical? Is there a dangling modifier?
I have another two sets of examples below. Am I right that e.g. 1 is correct whereas e.g. 2 is ungrammatical (ungrammatical in the sense that there is a dangling modifier)?
E.g. 1 As a politician, Johnny should not respond to citizens on the other side of the political spectrum in this way.
E.g. 2 As a politician, the way Johnny responded to citizens on the other side of the political spectrum was unacceptable.
How about this set of sentences? am I right that e.g. 3 is ungrammatical whereas e.g. 4 is grammatical?
e.g. 3 As a die-hard fan of Barack Obama, it is my honour to have a personal chat with him.
e.g. 4 As a die-hard fan of Barack Obama, I am honoured to have a personal chat with him.
