Does anybody know how to build a tree out of this sentence:
I think he should let you have a break.

My problem is:
1. if it's a CP
2. is there something between 'should [?] let [?] you have' little or big PRO?

I'd be grateful for any answers!

@fryka879,
Do you think you could restate the question. What you are asking isn't quite clear.

@farmerman,
True, but you are usually translatable.

@fryka879,
Here is as close as I can come:


I
h e
l e t
y o u
h a v e
t h i n k
s h o u l d
a
break



Hold a mirror up to the left side of the formation...and you have a tree.

@Frank Apisa,
Close enough, Frank. I will visualize the mirror.
