Diagramming sentences is one thing I never had to learn in school.  I think my sister had to do it, but being two years younger, by the time I got to that class they had discontinued it.  Yippee!

I never understood the need to do this and resisted learning it. A sentence either made sense or it didn't. All this diagramming was pointless. I comprehended things pretty well without it.

Hey, not to steal any thunder from Mr. Duff,Wink but, we are ALL "old school" here so I caught his hilarious homonym two. Well done!

OMG, Duff! The last sentence in post was/is great! Almost fell out of chair. I wonder how many caught that little gem of yours.

I taught English in high school for thirty years, and I never once had my students diagram sentences!

If it wasn't a "simple" sentence, then diagramming them was a lost cause to me. I wrote a report complaining about the fact I'd never diagram another sentence after I graduated from high school--and I haven't in almost 40 years.

Judging from some of the correspondence I receive, today's students hardly learn to spell, let alone understand proper grammatical form. Yes, your word processor's spell checker may catch many of your typos, but it will often let a homonym slip by undetected. So their!
