    Default Please R-K "the editor feels"

    "The staff will report on issues that the editor feels need coverage."

    Would you kindly show me how to R-K "the editor feels"?

    Thank you.

    I think I got that right. It was fun. I have always had a particular fondness for adjective clauses, complete with their relative pronouns. They are so amazing in what they do.

    Thanks SO much for the answer. I shall add the diagram to my collection.

    Just a silly question:

    Technically speaking, should the diagram show two "that" 's?

    The editor feels that (conjunction/expletive) that (relative pronoun) need coverage.

    Thanks!!!

    The staff will report on issues that the editor feels need coverage.

    There is only a relative pronoun there. Otherwise it would read...
    "The staff will repot on issues that the editor feels that should have coverage. " In this example, the second "that" would be a "function word" introducing a noun clause.

    I THINK this is right. Maybe Corum would weigh in with his opinion.
