This is an added layer of information/description that means oh by the way, you might want to know this too Ex. Jake, the famous Salty Dog from Hilton Head Island, jumped on the boat wagging his tail. (Its important to know that Jake jumped on the boat wagging his tail. Oh, hes also the famous Salty Dog.) Consider this analogy. ESSENTIAL MEANING - Visualize a hot fudge sundae with whipped cream and a cherry on top! The whipped cream and cherry are NECESSARY for the total hot fudge

sundae experience. NON-ESSENTIAL MEANING - Visualize a hot fudge sundae with whipped cream and a cherry on top. The whipped cream and cherry are NOT NECESSARY for the sundae experience.
