    Default A paradigm shift in Reed-Kellogg

    Thomas Kuhn's book "The Structure of Scientific Revolutions" popularized the idea of a paradigm shift. I think there is the potential for one with Reed-Kellogg. It is catching grammarians unprepared. What is new (and old) about R-K is that it is FUN.

    As someone once said: If you can't diagram it, don't write it.

    To obey that would be to stop a lot of writing.

    This thread is bringing few responses in spite of quite a few viewings.
    I think that supports my suggestion.
    Kondorosi, Parser, and I are comfortable with Reed-Kellogg. This is a predominantly British site. Kondorosi is a Swede, and Parser and I are Americans.
    Students who appeal to us for help are curious abut R-K, but their teachers, it seems, do not accept it.

    ***NOT A TEACHER***You probably already know about it, but I have just discovered that hundreds of original diagrams written by our heroes are now online. Just google A Key Containing Diagrams 1901 books.google.com. What a treasure!!! Since Messrs. Reed and Kellogg wrote them, there have been a few minor changes, but their 1901 book is still the master reference.

    Exactly WHAT should I google?
    I don't think I know about the book to which you are referring.

    ***NOT A TEACHER***I am computer illiterate; so please don't laugh at my clumsy instructions: (1) Go to Google. (2) Type in "A Key Containing Diagrams." (3) When the page comes up, look for the second entry that reads "A Key Containing Diagrams of the sentences given for analysis." Google has put on online the masters' 1901 book containing all of their answers to the exercises contained in another book (which, I believe, is also online). Although Mr. House made a few minor changes, this 1901 book is still THE guide. It shows almost every kind of possible diagram!!!

    NICE GOING!
    I see why you seem excited. What a find! How did you find it?
    That whole book should be pleasant reading for a Reed-Kellogger.
    Thanks
