Anonymous:I am trying to see if my sentence diagram is correct, but its not working when I try to attach my image.
The sentence is: I love you when you make chocolate cake
I diagramed it as follows, but say that the word is diagonal on a"when" diagonal dotted line connecting "love" and "make", and the word "chocolate" is on a solid diagonal line under the word "cake"
I | love | you
you | make | cake
Is that correct?? Thanks so much for your help!!
Anonymous:Excellent job!!! As you know, the line between subject and verb goes through the base line. As you said, you were not able to show this. Reed and Kellogg (the men who invented this diagramming system) would be proud of you. Gertrude Stein, a famous poet, said: "I really do not know that anything has ever been more exciting than diagramming sentences." Please post some more diagrams.
AnonymousGertrude Stein, a famous poet, said: "I really do not know that anything has ever been more exciting than diagramming sentences."A particularly astonishing remark considering that it comes from a woman who lived through the excitement of two world wars in France.
Anonymous:how can i order the diagrammimg to see if my sentences are coorrect
Are you trying to analyse your sentence using the usual clause elements? I assume you are, so here goes:
S | V | O | --------------A-----------------------------------------------
I | love | you [when you| make |chocolate cake].
S | V | O
(Note: S = Subject, V = Verb, O = Object, A = Adverbial)
