  • This is how you diagram a sentence with a prepositional phrase...

*When diagramming a sentence with a preposition, the preposoition goes under the direct object, the subject, or the verb it modifies. You should put the preposition on a slanted line and the object on a horizontal line. Any modifiers will go on a slanted line underneath the object of the preposition.*
