The Magic of Diagramming Sentences

August 8, 2010

It’s time for me to let out my inner geek…Back in the day I learned to diagram sentences from my junior high teacher.  In addition to that, I remember having to memorize 35 prepositions.  I wasn’t too happy to do all the hard work that went into learning English grammar.  Today, I’m very thankful.  Diagramming sentences really helped me understand all the parts of a sentence in a logical manner and has helped me to become a better writer.

I recently stumbled upon a video that touches on diagramming sentences.  It’s been so long since I’ve done this and brought back some interesting memories.  From what I understand, it’s been a long time since sentence diagramming has been taught in schools.

For more information about sentence diagramming, check out the Wiki entry about the topic.  For some books about diagramming sentences, check out Amazon.com (not an Affiliate link).

How about you…have you ever diagrammed sentences?  If so, how did you like it?
