Hi, I came across the following sentence while reading the book "Essential Words for the TOEFL". A resilient and determined government official, Hoover's tenure spanned one of the most important eras of modern US history. Source: Essential Words for the TOEFL, 5th Edition, By Matthiesen My concern is a grammatical point. As far as I know, "official" is a noun here, and I think "A resilient and determined government official" is a description of a person named "Hoover". Shouldn't the structure be like "A resilient and determined government official, Hoover, 's tenure ..."? Thank you in advance.
