Henry David Thoreau has many great quotes. Let's diagram one of them!
"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams."
"Live the life you have imagined."
(you) = subject (pronoun)
Live = verb (transitive active)
life = noun (direct object)
the = adjective
(that) you have imagined = dependent adjective clause
you = subject of dependent adjective clause (pronoun)
have imagined = verb phrase of dependent adjective clause
(that) = implied direct object (relative pronoun introducing dependent adjective clause)
Hello! I'm Elizabeth O'Brien, and my goal is to get you jazzed about grammar.
simple explanations about the seemingly complex English language have
been wonderful for my students who did not "get" it. My students (most
diagnosed with "serious" issues) can identify verbs/subject/object in
sentences easily and verbalize why these are important in language.
