Which does "patiently" describe? "Linda" or "Martin"? I think it's ambiguous. In "Linda waited for Martin to patiently finish", "patiently" definitely describes "Martin", though.
gr67)Linda waited for Martin to finish patiently.
My grammar book says in "Linda waited for Martin to finish patiently." , " "Linda is patient", which is wrong according to your explanation. So doesn't it have any possibility to be intereted as describing "Martin"?
