How to parse a sentence


Sample parse of a simple sentence</a>

The syntactic analysis of a complex sentence differs noticeably from the parsing of a simple one, so at the beginning of the analysis you will need to determine how many parts are included in the sentence: one or more.



At the first stage, you need to parse the sentenceBy members and emphasize them: the subject - one feature, the predicate - two, the definition - a wavy line, the complement - dotted, and circumstance - an alternation of dashes and dots. Sometimes it is also required to indicate the links between the members of the proposal and ask questions for each of them.


If the sentence is simple, specify the type of the predicate: Simple verbal (PGS), compound verbal (GHS) or compound nominal (SIS). In case there are several predicates, specify the type of each of them. If the proposal is complex, number each of its parts and draw up a diagram of this proposal, indicating the means of communication (alliances and allied words). In addition, specify the types of subordinate clauses (attributive, explanatory or circumstantial: the appendages of time, places, causes, effects, conditions, goals, concessions, comparisons, modes of action, measures and degrees or connecting) and the types of relations between them (sequential, parallel or homogeneous ).


Next, describe the proposal by specifying its type by purposeUtterances (narrative, interrogative or stimulating), by intonation (exclamatory or non-exclamatory) and by the number of grammatical foundations (simple or complex: compound, complex, unconditioned). If the sentence is simple, continue the analysis, indicating the type by the number of principal members (two-part or one-part: naming, definite-personal, indefinite-personal, generalized-personal or impersonal), by the presence of secondary members (common or unadulterated), by the presence of missed major members (Complete or incomplete), and also indicate how it is complicated (by homogeneous members, separated members, introductory or plug-in constructions, direct speech, treatment, or not complicated by anything). If the sentence is complicated, continue the analysis according to the same scheme, but for each of its parts separately.
