Adventures in Syntax

I have important (non-linguistics) work to be doing tonight, so of course I decided that it's a great time to try a new syntactic tree program. TreeForm is a bit of a PITA to start up, but it's a very intuitive drag-and-drop program with a lot of options. I test-drove the Buffalo buffalo problem with as much X' Theory as I understand and got this (click to enlarge):

It's not quite elegant (or likely completely correct) yet, but a few more weeks of study and playing with the program might do the trick.
