What's wrong with this sentence?
What is wrong with the following sentence: "Bob is a curious person, collecting things." My instinct tells me that the correct version of this sentence would be "Bob is a curious person who collects things" but I'm not sure a) if I'm correct or b) what, technically, makes the first version incorrect. Can anyone help?
The original sentence is very informal. It could easily be used in a work of fiction or an email to a friend. Informal and conversational speech often omits words or even phrases that are understood in context. If you were writing something more formal, your rewritten sentence would be fine.
