    I need help diagramming

    I was wondering how you would diagram the following sentence.

    Maya threw it and whatever I used to console her.


    My main problem with this sentence is the direct object, and I would like some help.

    Re: I need help diagramming

    Maya threw it and whatever I used to console her.
    MAya threw:

    1. it
    2. whatever I used

    Why? To console her.

    How would you like your sentence diagrammed? RK?

    Re: I need help diagramming

    Maya threw it and whatever I used to console her.
    Also

    Maya threw:

    1. it
    2. whatever I used to console her

    Given this interpretation and the one in my previous post in this thread, we can agree that this sentence is open to two interpretations.
