The author analyses an idea and term of dangling (absolute) participle construction, which means in Slovak grammatical tradition connection of participle with its adjuncts. He finds out that the term dangling participle construction is used to name different syntactic phenomenon: in addition to the real dangling participle constructions, that acquire parenthetic character in the sentence. This term is used also in connection with original participle forms, that came after transposition under secondary prepositions and adverbs or (seldom) under particles. But the real dangling participle constructions are only those, whose essential word has preserved validity of verbal form.
