Sentence Diagramming

Seeing lists is a great way to learn what an adverb is. Sentence diagramming can teach you what an adverb does.

Sentence diagramming is a visual way to show how the words in a sentence are related to each other.

You already know that adverbs are words that modify verbs, adjectives, and other adverbs. Diagramming will show this to you. Adverbs are diagrammed on a slanted line underneath the word that they modify.
