Diagramming Sentences-Online Resources

Diagramming sentences, oh my! I recently shared how we are walking down this new pathway by referencing four ebooks. I love ebooks, but sometimes I need a different view, a new angle, a sideways look. Thus, in my search of a new vantage point I wish to share with you some of my “new to me” discoveries. Click on the titles below and join us on our leisurely walk to grammar delight!

Basic Sentence Parts, Phrase Configurations (or in my world, “Where do those lines go?!”)

Ever ponder where the lines go? Does a forward slash and a backward slash with a connecting dotted line leave you confused? Well, it does me! Merely click on the sentence type you are pondering and an example will appear at the bottom of the screen. This website is actually in two parts in which you can scroll the top and still see the bottom portion. This allows you to view difference sentence structures and phrase configurations with ease.

ZZCad Sentence Parsing Program

It doesn’t give an actual diagram, but it might come in handy to parse your sentences.

I know there are many more sites than these which linger in the electronic universe. If you have a great diagramming sentence resource to share, please add it in the comments below!

  1. Thanks for sharing these! We are not quite at diagramming yet, but it will be here soon! I was never taught this type of thing in school (don’t know why), so I am definitely going to need all the help I can get =)

    1. You are welcome Amy. Oh, how time passes too rapidly in the homeschool world. So much “I” have to learn, so little time.

  2. Thanks so much for posting these. I’m going to pin it for reference.

  3. Thank you! This was very helpful this morning.

    We are looking forward to practicing these excercises.

    Thank you for your post. This is very helpful. A few things I noticed though.

    The diagramer is now a pay per use trap, so I don’t use it. If I could buy it, I would use it, but I don’t like the subscription model.

    Your “seven practice” link is broken or gone.

    Here are some sites that work for me too.

    This site parses the sentences into grammatical parts, but does not diagram them for you.

    Hope this helps.

    1. Subscription service-not cool. Thanks for letting me know! I’ve added the ZZCad link you shared and updated.
