DIAGRAMMING SENTENCES
Diagramming sentences provides a way of picturing thestructure of a sentence. By placing the various parts of asentence in relation to the basic subject-verb relationship, wecan see how the parts fit together and how the meaning of asentence branches out, just as the branches of a plant ramifyfrom the stem in space and time. Most students who work atdiagramming sentences derive a clearer understanding of howsentences work — as well as satisfaction in the pictorialrendering of sentence structure. This presentation touchesupon only the basics of diagramming. Use the hyperlinks backto the Guide to Grammar and Writing(this color)foradditional information.
