    Reed-Kellogging Interrogative Pronoun

    "What" does he know that I do not know?"

    Would I R-K it thusly:


    (1) The first line: He does know what.

    (2) Second line: I do not know that.

    (a) Attach "That" with a dotted line to "what."


    Thank you

    Parser,

    Sorry. I tried to post the diagram, but I am getting rusty. It sounds to me, though, as if you understand how to do it.

    If learners only realized what they are missing in not using Reed-Kellogg.

    Forcing oneself to map a sentence is the exact kind of discipline that everyone

    -- including native speakers -- needs.

    I think that one person was quoted as saying something like: Don't write it if you

    cannot diagram it.
