Parsing English Sentences through The SAP

The SAP picks up where The LEP left off. While The LEP concerns itself with syntax and semantics, orthography and readability elements, The SAP is focused on analysis. This analysis will be conducted via parsing English sentences based on syntax and semantics. Analysis through parsing is intended to enable you to understand the exact meaning of a sentence or word.

Grammatical division will be emphasized by way of grammatical form and grammatical function, and syntactic function. In sum, The SAP will apply the rules of traditional grammar to parse sentences, and the goal is to encourage grammatical and syntactic proficiency, particularly when editing literary fiction.

As you may have already correctly inferred, parse is used here in its linguistic sense, which, according to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition, means:

  1. a: to divide (a sentence) into grammatical parts and identify the parts and their relations to each other
    b: to describe (a word) grammatically by stating the part of speech and explaining the inflection
