Sentence Diagramming & Pronouns

Sentence diagramming is a visual way to show how the words in a sentence are related to each other. Pronouns can do many things in a sentence, and the way they are diagrammed depends on the way that they are acting in each sentence. Here are some of the jobs that pronouns can do: subject, direct object, indirect object, object of the preposition, and predicate noun.

Learn more about diagramming by going to the grammar exercise page which will take you step-by-step through diagramming.
