Another helpful work as far as diagramming goes is _Biblical Greek Exegesis: A Graded Approach to Learning Intermediate and Advanced Greek_ (Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 1998) by George H. Guthrie and J. Scott Duvall.

<<Personally, i think diagramming is not linguistically practical or
useful (even tho as a nerdy middle school student i actually liked diagramming).
  For semantics, i can recommend _Linguistic Categorization_ by John R.
Taylor, which is a cognitive approach to semantics and categorization, and
it's easy to read; and _Semantic Analysis: A Practical Introduction_ by
Cliff Goddard, which is also a fairly readable intro to the general concepts of
semantics. I'd stay away from formal semantics -- too mathematical and
impractical for general linguistic purposes.>>
