    If you think Yoda’s old, you should see his grammar.

    To diagram the sentence correctly, you first have not to split the infinitive. It should be, Who wants to diagram this sentence correctly?

    I never understood diagraming sentences. (Probably because I didn’t see the point.) I’d just draw a straight line, with little lines going up and down and put the words anyplace. Maybe that’s why she asked specifically to have it done “correctly”.

    No one diagrams sentences anymore in public school, a good reason for the terrible grammar of today. Just ask any high school student what an adjective or adverb is and they will give you a blank look. I get a lot of job applications that either have terrible grammar or have been written like a text message, those go in the trash.

    Not in English English either. We can thank some clever Hollywood script writers for setting us straight about infinitives, by deciding to boldly go where no grammarian has gone before.

    The infinitive form in Latin is a single word, so the Romans wouldn’t know what a split infinitive was. In modern English, splitting an infinitive isn’t considered grammatically incorrect, just not suitable for serious writing. One of the reasons for learning to diagram sentences is that it helps you spot mistakes. If you were to diagram “to correctly diagram,” you would, hopefully, discover you had split the infinitive. The reason not to split it is that it is part of the verb. It’s like chopping a verb in two and inserting an adverb. In this case, it just sounds awkward.
