Grammar Name Date Diagra mming Direct Obje cts Once you locate a direct object(s), diagramming it is relatively simple. The direct object is placed on the same horizontal line as the subject and verb. It comes after the verb and is separated from the verb by a short vertical line that does not go below the main horizontal line. Observe the pattern below. Subject Verb Direct Object Because direct objects are nouns or pronouns, they can be modified by adjectives (including the articles a, an, and the) or by prepositional phrases. Any modifiers of a direct object will be diagrammed in the same way modifiers of the subject of the sentence are diagrammed. They will simply be placed directly below the direct object. Take, for example, the sentence “The little boy kicked the red rubber ball.” It would be diagrammed in the following fashion: A compound direct object uses the same construction as a compound predicate, or what can be referred to as the “Y-Wing Fighter” shape. Take, for example, the sentence, “We studied nouns and verbs.” We would diagram this sentence in the following manner: Of course, you will need to remember how diagram compound sentences, compound subjects, and compound predicates. A direct object could appear in any kind of sentence. Please diagram the following sentences below or on a separate piece of paper for homework. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.
