6 Creative Uses of Sentence Diagramming by Arika Okrent
mental_floss magazine
August 8, 2013

Linguist and author Arika Okrent has included my work in a blog post on the magazine mental_floss, which covers a wide array of catchy topics. Highlighted by Okrent are some ways that sentence diagrams—the once a widespread technique for teaching kids how to analyze the structure of a sentence— have made their way into creative forms outside the classroom. Also included are diagramming-loving artists Nicholas KnightRobert Cumming, and Kevin Huizenga. Perhaps most rewarding was the introduction to the incredible work (including that of Robert Cumming) that was created in the twin cities of Minnesota during the 1960s and 1970s, as explained by Peggy Weil, a digital media designer and artist.
