Fredc:

You mat want to check this video out. It is about 1.5 hours long, but it has some good basic information.

Thanks, I'll check it out. It looks like a good refresher as I've had experience with line diagramming before. But I don't know anything about tree diagramming. I'm assuming there's more to it than drawing my diagram lines in a different shap, but I haven't found much info on it.

Daniel,

My apologies. When you said "tree diagramming," I thought "line diagramming." I'm not sure what you specifically mean by "tree diagramming," so I can't say that Schreiner's book addresses it.

Not sure about tree diagramming, but the best introduction to sentence diagramming I've yet seen is by Eugene Moutoux.  I bought 2 of his from Amazon: 

  • Drawing Sentences: A Guide to Diagramming
  • Diagramming Step by Step: One Hundred and Fifty-Five Steps to Excellence in Sentence Diagramming

Thanks,

Those sound like useful books.

What I'm thinking of looks something like what you'll see in this link http://www.ductape.net/~eppie/tree/screenshots.html

There are three basic styles of parse trees used in linguistics - constituency, dependency and x-bar. Nearly every text for introduction to linguistics or introduction to syntax will include a section on drawing tree diagrams. Some places to start:

If you still have questions, ask again.

I think this will keep me busy for quite awhile. Thank you.
