HTC Corp. v. IPCom GmbH & Co., 667 F.3d 1270, 1274-75 (Fed. Cir. 2012) (modifiers are presumed to modify the antecedent noun), citing Wm. Strunk, Jr. & E.B. White, The Elements of Style 30 (4th ed. 2000); In re Hyatt, 708 F.2d 712, 714 (Fed. Cir. 1983) (requiring that claims be read in accordance with the precepts of English grammar). If Oracle had wanted the "between" clause to modify the interconnect portions, it could have used a conjunction or a comma before "between", although it is not clear whether the specification would have provided support for such an amendment.
