diagramming a sentence
Breaking Down The Whole To Its Parts
a: Diagramming a sentence ~
b: putting it up on blocks
What: "Diagramming a sentence is like putting it up on blocks to examine its engine from below - or: like dangling its counterbalanced parts like a mobile; - or: like dissecting its anatomy on the surgeon's table."

METAMIA is a free database of analogy
and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search.
The subject matter can be anything.
Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged.
The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with
the stark literalism of a relational database.
Metamia is like a girdle for your muses,
a cognitive girdle.
