    Default A Reed-Kellogg Diagram, please

    Would you kindly R-K this sentence:

    Tom received a gift from his relatives back home.

    I am having a terrible problem trying to diagram it correctly.

    Thank you so much!!!

    It may not be the best interpretation, but it works.

    Thanks.

    Parser,

    Sorry for the late post, but I just arrived!

    Curious as to the diagram. I'm thinking about it, and back home seems to modify relatives (meaning which ones?). Yet I cannot help but think of back home (showing where?)as an adverbial objective, therefore placing it underneath the verb.

    What is your take?

    Thank you for your kind note.

    Perhaps I do not understand. When you say that "back home" is

    an adverbial objective that modifies a verb, may I ask which verb

    you are referring to?

    According to the diagram above, it does belong to the implied verb

    "live."

    Thank you

    back home relatives

    relatives back home

    relatives living nearby

    second cousin relatives

    relatives by marriage

    all adjectives telling what kind of relatives.

    Unhappy Re: A Reed-Kellogg Diagram, please

    wow, this looks like complicated stuff. I sure would love to learn how to do this. I've read many other forums from a man named "Frank Antonson" and he seems like a very wise man at these kinds of things.

    Yes, Mr. Antonson is great at this. He will be delighted to help you. Just

    post a question, and he'll help you. I always recommend this forum to

    people who are interested in Reed-Kellogg. This diagramming system will

    truly help you better understand the parts of an English sentence.

    Thank you.

    But I honestly don't think it is that complicated. I suspect that some of my students will be better at R-K than I am after about one more month of partial instruction. I say "partial" because they are studying other matters from me at the same time.

    I just think that it is completely new to so many people outside the USA or under the age of 40.

    Following closely the site that my students are creating will probably make anyone who tries to be as expert as I am.
