Cindy Vitto is Professor of English at Rowan University, Glassboro, New Jersey.
"Rejoice! After years of neglect, sentence diagraming can unapologetically return to college courses. Cindy Vitto's Grammar by Diagram makes this a fruitful return by using diagraming first to lay bare the structural bones of English and then to demonstrate ways in which writers use these components to create effective sentences. Through diagraming, students see that a strong sentence is a purposefully structured unit and not a set of words aimlessly strung together. Thus Grammar by Diagram not only gives students skills for crafting better sentences but also tools for examining language with greater care." - Candace Barrington, Central Connecticut State University
