A squinting modifier is a misinserted modifier that, because of its location in a sentence, can modify either the expression that precedes it or the one that complies with it. (In the instance sentence, is the subject listening to music gradually or gradually gaining a headache?) To correct a squinting modifier, reposition it in the sentence to make it clear to the reader which word you intfinish to modify.
