Construction (Const)

The construction of your sentence has made it awkward or confusing. Often the problems are the result of starting the sentence with the wrong clause or phrase. When a sentence doesn't work, start it from a different part. Pick it up and shake it. See the pages on sentences for problems to avoid in construction.
