Diagramming Sentences

I learned the rudiments of diagramming sentences when I was in grade school. Or was it junior high?

In any case, diagramming is a valuable tool for writers and editors who want to know not only how, but why, one way of putting thoughts on paper is “correct” English usage and another is not.

I often go to the web pages below to make sense of what’s going on in puzzling sentence constructions. Perhaps you will find them useful too.
