Thank you for visiting my business writing blog. If you’ve never diagrammed sentences before, you’re in for a strange treat. But you should work through Sentence Diagrams – Tutorial No. 1 and No. 2 before you do this one.
For the 3rd tutorial on diagramming I want to show you how to physically draw a diagram. That’s what you need to do if you want to learn this as quickly and as thoroughly as possible. Drawing the diagrams burns them into your muscle memory, making it easier to remember. So this tutorial is all on video.
We’ll work through the diagrams for a sentence before and after editing. It’s yet another example of what a wonderful tool diagramming is, both for learning grammatical structure and for analysing troubled sentences.
Anyway, have a look at the video to see how it’s done in the real world. Forgive the rough sound quality — I’m working with two different recording systems. Will improve in future.
