    What's the sentence and how would you like to diagram it (e.g., binary trees; square brackets, etc.)?

    How can you diagram a sentence except to use words that give a picture of what you are trying to see? Why also analyse the sentence in the first place even if you use basic and simple words? Paul/pljames

    Sentences are mini-puzzles. :cool: The words fit in certain positions. Diagramming a sentence tells us about how the puzzle fits together. It gives us the code, the language code (more commonly known as "Grammar".)

    I try to write like that but my style gets in the way. I would love to be structured but that is not my style. Beautiful exsplanation! Thank you for that, there might be something there for me to ponder to perfect my english writing there. But I do not believe in the word perfect. Paul/pljames

    It is looks interesting by using that "diagraming a sentence" as a tool of learning the English language. My only concern about this diagrams and the lines itself is they look confusing and complicated to understand . How would I able to understand those lines and symbols?

    We don't do diagramming in the UK and I have to say that it has never appealed much to me.

    Re: diagram a sentence

    Dear Casiopea,
    I use brackets (). I have not as of yet studied in depth the diagramming structure in sentencing so for now I use brackets. I do not outline and have my own way of outlining the points of the sentence using basic ad simple words in the first sentence and then use synonyms in all the other paragraphs. For now I use brackets. Will get back to you as soon as I understand the sentence diagram I understand a flow chart and mind mapping which is like sentence diagramming. pljames
