    Default Diagramming help

    "He was never really that much into soccer."

    How would our heroes Reed and Kellogg have diagrammed this one?

    I would have shown "really" as a modifier of "that much" because it tells how much.

    Thank you for your insightful post.

    Your idea comes out very clearly if we simply the sentence:

    He was very much into soccer.

    He was really very much into soccer.
