    Diagramming Shakespeare 4

    Here's a quote that House and Harman themselves diagrammed. From Much Ado...
    "When I said that I would die a bachelor, I did not think I would live till I were married"
    I will work on trying to post the solution here later.

    Dear Kondorosi,
    I will not bother to quote House and Harman because you diagrammed it perfectly (with your "or" option). Incidentally, for those who have the book, it is on page 401.
    H&H DOES place the "when" clause connection to the left of the "not" -- which I think is correct, but not that important.

    Thanks Frank! You do not like the ellipted (as) interpretation? Adverb function of the prep. phrase?

    I don't like it as much as the other, though I say it could work.
    More importantly H&H did not see it that way.
