    Alexander the Great's horse was a seemingly untamable stallion named Bucephalus.

    subject= horse

    adjective modifying subject= Alexander the Great's

    linking verb= was

    predicate noun= stallion

    adjectives modifying predicate noun= a, untamable

    adverb modifying "untamable"= seemingly

    participle phrase acting as adjective modifying "stallion"= named Bucephalus

    (within the phrase, "Bucephalus" is complementing the "verb", named)

    To see how to diagram all of these, go to English Grammar Revolution: Grammar Made Easy
