Reading about people diagramming sentences just made me want to give a short
plug for understanding sentence structure:

I'm glad I paid attention to that stuff in school, because it sure came in
handy when I learned German. In German, all the nouns have specific gender
articles (masculine-der, feminine-die, and neuter-das), and the ending of the
article depends on the case of the noun--nominative, accusative, or dative.
Thanks to my grade school Roberts English, I didn't have to learn those
concepts in addition to the German!
