I'm having kids who just finished second grade code sentences in their SummerBridge books in the Shurley style. We're having trouble with the word "my."
How would this sentence be coded?
"Roberto's is my favorite restaurant."
The word "my" is a pronoun -- the possessive form of "I" -- but if you diagrammed it, it would show up in an adjective position, in this case modifying "restaurant."
I'll let you know if I learn otherwise, but I believe this is correct.
(I have no idea what "Shurley style" is!!)
