    Default Diagramming Shakespeare 28 CAT 2


    I have of late lost all my mirth... (Hamlet)

    "Late" is treated as a noun and "of" is understood. "All" is an indefinite pronoun (and here the direct object). That should be easy.

    Yes, I do too. It is simpler and does not require any understood words.

    Sometimes, though, I think it is forgotten that words like "all" and "some" can be pronouns as well as adjectives.

    Thanks for your response.
