Before I had any right to dismiss Twihards or criticize the psychologically unhealthy relationship model that Bella Swan and Edward Cullen present, I felt obliged to read the books. So I did. All four novels, one novella, and an incomplete document in portable format. The content lived down to my expectations, but I was unprepared for how poorly crafted the saga is.

(Excerpt from Sin and Syntax, by Constance Hale)

The approach I use when diagramming sentences is called the Reed-Kellogg system. To be honest, I’m not sure that my diagrams are 100% correct because I was never taught how to diagram sentences in school. (I get help from Boyfriend and reference books.)

Reed-Kellogg diagrams are fantastic exercises that force you to consider the relationships between words in a sentence. My primary purpose in diagramming Meyer’s sentences is to make it undeniably apparent how much rambling she does.
