    I don't think we diagrammed sentences, but in sixth grade, we did so many worksheets on the proper use of every punctuation mark that I wanted to scream!

    I don't think my now-college-age kids ever diagrammed a sentence.

    Now that I think about it, I don't think my son did either, and he graduated HS in 2003.

    Mine didn't either.

    I have 2 friends on facebook that are the spelling and grammar nazi's. But, sometimes you do have to laugh at some of the stuff you see on there.

    I read one post about being "generist" 3 times before I figured out she meant generous.

    Anyway, this one friend came up with the term "punk shoe asian" as an alternativie to "punctuation" and ever since I have thought it would be a great name for a band or a Chinese restaurant or a really cool shoe store.

    For what it's worth I graduated HS in 2001 and did have to diagram sentences. Though I don't remember doing it often and I think it was in elementary and middle school that we did it. One of my friends teaches high school English and Literature and makes her students do it because they have never done it before and apparently their grammar is horrible.

    Sr. Mary Agnes (84 years old) was my teacher in 7th grade. We diagrammed sentences constantly. It balanced out nicely with the creative writing classes in 9th and 10th grades. And the Latin I took at the same time.

    Mastering sentence diagramming (and the skills that went along with it) was very helpful in my foreign language and linguistic studies -- especially in mastering grammars of heavily inflected languages such as German and Polish.
