I have a question about the sentence pattern ([subject] [non-ing verb clause], [ing verb clause]) illustrated by the following:
Bill Gross’s email included a 10-point outline of what he saw as major problems at the Newport Beach, Calif., firm, blaming specific executives, according to a person familiar with the situation.
If I write the following:
- The report describes the problems at the firm, blaming specific employees.
- The report describes the problems at the firm and blames specific employees.
, how are sentences 1 & 2 different? Does sentence 1 contain meanings not found in sentence 2?
