How do you diagram this sentence, if diagrammable at all?

Postby Fordhamhopeful » Tue Feb 09, 2010 2:48 am

Getting confused, hope someone can help with diagramming the below sentence.

'A gross disproportionality principle is applicable to sentences for terms of years."

Is it: GD-> SFTY? OR SFTY--> GD?



Diagrammable is probably not a word, but my entire question couldn't fit.

Thanks for the help.

I suppose you could analyze the sentence as equivalent to "If it's a gross disproportionality principle, it's applicable to sentences for terms of years," which would match your first diagram.

I'd write something like, "gross dis. -> applicable," myself.
