    Default Diagramming

    I have to diagram the sentence:

    "The canoe which the scouts built was too heavy."

    I don't know where to diagram "too heavy" since "too" is an adverb and "heavy" is an adjective.

    Have a look here- the way they have done 'too quietly' would be the same, wouldn't it? http://userpages.burgoyne.com/bdespa...r/r_k_s014.htm
