    modifying phrase是a phrase which is used as a modifier的簡稱,這是用來當修飾語的片語,可能是副詞性質,也可能是形容詞性質。

    adverb clause是a clause which is used as a modifier to modify the predicate的簡稱,這種子句也是用來當修飾語的,但屬副詞性質。

    before leaving for work是介系詞片語,用來當述部ate breakfast的修飾語,屬於副詞性質。你也可以稱其為副詞片語。

    modifying phrase視修飾對象,可能是副詞性質的片語,也可能是形容詞性質的片語。所以用語並不精確。

    "Before I left for work " 為一個副詞子句,用來當時間副詞,因為這個子句

    的主詞 I 跟主要子句 I ate breakfast 的主詞一樣,所以可以用 leave 的現在

    分詞 leaving 來取代原來副詞子句的主詞與動詞。
