Becoming a Fisher of Subordinating Style

Fish revealed that there are three components of subordinating style: Causal (one event caused by another), Temporality (events are prior to another), and Precedence (events are ordered in hierarchies of importance).  An abundance of examples of aphorisms were given, such as, “Tomorrow is a new day.”  Also noted were analyses of several clause-filled quotes, which either “leaned” forward or backward (by the main idea either being described then finally revealed, or revealed then described).
