Diagramming Sentences and the Power of Morphology

The Language log Blog brings up diagramming sentences.  Very familiar and mostly disliked activity in early education in the US.  I remember being much intrigued by the application of this method to determine the structure, or morphology, of something like our own language. A first step in managing the knowledge that exists in language.  The article points out that the method is still in use and there are many resources that exist for it and are easily accessible.  Stripping a difficult problem down to its morphology can be a powerful way to solving it. I will follow later this week with a post that shows how morphology can address the wicked problems of today.
