Question
Please help! I cannot diagram the following sentence:
But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

Answer
Dear James,
Did you take this sentence,, because I can't believe a teacher would give this one. It is very difficult to diagram it as
it contains 2 main clauses, 3 dependent, clauses, 1infintive phase, a one participial prases.  I suggest you take an easier sentence as not all  sentence seems can be diagrammed.
Here is my web site that may help you.
teachro..publiccomputingservices.org.
When you get there you would have to click on complex  sentences and on verbals.
If you choose a simpler sentence, you are welcome to write again to us...or just use my site.
Thank you for writing to AllExperts.

Expertise

I am a retired Middle School teacher. I am an expert in grammar (structure of the English language) and writing. I have been a volunteer with AOL Ask A Teacher and have submitted many articles and special collections (one on diagramming sentences and one with worksheets and answers so students can check their own practice on grammar skills) to their knowledge database. I still am with them but would like other work where I can help students with their English study. I have time to help you with this, if you want me. I can help with grade school, middle school and high school grammar & writing and can also look up information on literature (reading) for students and help them with it. Please let me know if I can be of help in these areas. Thank you. Rosemary Lenc
