I'm having trouble diagramming sentences. How do you diagram an object complement? Ex. The stories made them proud of their achievements. Proud is an object complement, right? I can't figure out how to diagram it. Also, how do you diagram things when you have three or more verbs? I know how to do the free throw line, barn, whatever you want to call it, for two, but I don't know what to do for three. Thanks
