    Smile Re: diagram a sentence

    Here is a simple sentence.

    I eat.

    First you find the subject and the verb in the sentences.

    I = subject
    eat= verb


    diagram this way...

    Draw a horizontal line with a short perpendicular line going through it. This is the start of most every sentence diagram.

    I l eat
    l

    Now add a direct object to make your sentnce say, I eat food. For the direct object you draw a perpendicular line, but it does not go through the original line.

    I l eat l food
    l

    Re: diagram a sentence

    It sounds a little as if you are trying to re-invent the wheel http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/GRAMM...ms_frames.html. That is a website that does a pretty good job of showing the whole system, that is the system used in the United States.

    A famous American writer, Gertrude Stein, once said, "I really do not know that anything has ever been more exciting than diagramming sentences."

    Of course, you have to study it a little before you can do it.

    That website doesn't look right. Let me try again.

    That looks better.
