According to the preface of the book the book is for teaching English-speaking students how to diagram sentences. They start very simple and get more complex. I have found that they cover an awful lot of grammatical ground and make excellent test sentences for conlangs. In addition, they provide a wide ranging lexicon that helps fill holes in conlang dictionaries. --gary
