    Arrow Dangling Participle

    Hello, Tdol !

    Many thanks for your previous advice.

    1. I feel [like] I'm working my butt off for nothing ; here it's functioning as a conjunction.

    If so, can I be understood that the [like] has originally been [a prepostion], but here it's
    functioning as [a conjunction]?

    2. Re para.2 ; Caffeine stimulates the central nervous system, [causing an increased heart
    rate and alertness] ;

    Can I consider above [ ] as so-called "Dangling Participle" ?

    Best Rgds,
