Definition

Supplementary events, unlike constituent events, are not necessary for the development of a story. They remain on the outskirts of the main plot.

Examples

"Wendy's favourite time for sewing and darning was after they had all gone to bed. Then, as she expressed it, she had a breathing time for herself; and she occupied it in making new things for them, and putting double pieces on the knees, for they were all most frightfully hard on their knees."

J. M. Barrie, Peter Pan
