    Here's their definition of 'diagramming a sentence':
    analyzing a sentence and portraying its structure with a consistent visual scheme can be helpful

    "Parse" a sentence was what my old English teacher (Mr O'Connell, known to all and sundry as "Lib"!) used to call it.

    (The Irish on the forum will probably understand why a Mr O'Connell was nikc-named "Lib".) ;)

    Parse! of course. How could I ever forget the word which (second only to "decline" in Latin classes) made be shiver with fear at school.

    I thought that 'parsing' was different, namely identifying the role of a particular word in a sentence, and explaining how its form fits that role, rather than explaining the structure of a sentence. Certainly that was how I was trained to parse Latin words!
