    That would be very interesting to hear some of my students try to teach.
    Hmm, I see. So the 'plus' sign is used to connect the subject and the predicate in R-K's, right? Like this:

    I diagram sentences.
    I diagram + sentences.

    By the way, I think I understand there are more than one sentence diagramming methods? R-K would be one of them, maybe the most important/known/used one?

    PS I suspected there would be problems with 'Hello World'. I just picked it up because we were previously talking about computers and this expression is a
    traditional one programmers use whenever they begin learning a new programming language (traditionally 'Hello World' is the first program you write in a new language).

    My students are watching me do this.

    That plus isn't quite right. And the plus should go after "I" . "Sentences" is the direct object. More later.

    OK, so it would go like:

    __I | + | diagram sentences.


    What is the main idea of diagramming sentences? Classify the parts of speech?
    In that example I is the subject and diagram sentences the predicate, right?
    And sentences is the object of the verb diagram - how does the diagram tell that?

    I'd like to hear Mr Antonson's students.

    Re: Let the games begin

    Ok, here is what my notes say:

    "Interjections and nouns of direct address are not part of the predication and are diagrammed on own, unconnected lines.
    example (e.g.)
    Sentence: Hello Abstract Idea, what do you think?

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	example on direct objects for using english.JPG 
Views:	6 
Size:	9.8 KB 
ID:	1011

    (the example is attached as a .jpg)
    Also, I do not know if this is what you want. If it doesn't maybe Mr. Antonson can help.

    Another thing (this is for the whole forum), I now have the website set up that you can connect your account on the Humanities/Language Notes site with your Facebook account!

    You people should get a life. Sentence diagramming is so old. Just learn whats new and exciting. Maybe take a trip to Lizachumea or something. I've heard that its pretty exciting there!
