    Re: diagramming

    I'll quide you through the first one.

    Let's test it:

    Question: How much milk?
    Answer: Some milk. <adjective>
    some, adj., means consisting of a number more than 2 or 3 but less than many. Below, 'some' modifies the noun phrase 'warm and nourishing milk',

    1. The crying kitten wanted some warm and nourishing milk. (what part of speech is some?

    All the best.
