Tomorrow’s Diagramming Test

Posted: November 12, 2015 in Home

The best thing you can do to study for the diagramming test is to review the parts of speech. If you are able to recognize a preposition, then you will be able to find a prepositional phrase–remember: prepositions do not travel alone; they carry nouns and other modifiers with them to make phrases. I posted a link to a site dealing with prepositions several days ago. You can find it by scrolling down (where there is a will there is a way!).

Do you know what a noun is? How about an adjective or adverb? Do you know what a conjunction is and does? Do you realize that verbs deal with both action and state of being? Can you recognize an article when you see one, and do you remember that articles announce the imminent arrival of a noun?
