Please diagram the following sentence:
The nickname for the state of Virginia is "Mother of Presidents."
My grandaughter just called and wanted to know what was the verb in the above sentence.
"is" is the verb in that sentence.
nickname (subject) is ( linking verb) "Mother of Presidents" ( predicate nominative)
"for the state" prep.ph modifying nickname, "of Virginia" prep ph. modifying state.
