  1. And what’s the subtext of “Our silent Supreme Court justice” I wonder?

  2. The subtext is the text that is beneath (sub) those words: “AP: Clarence Thomas hasn’t uttered a word from the bench since February 22, 2006.” I’ve tried to make it as clear as I could.

  3. Actually, that’s not how “subtext” is currently used. Here are a couple definitions from the dictionary for your reference.

    The implicit meaning or theme of a literary text.

    The underlying personality of a dramatic character as implied or indicated by a script or text and interpreted by an actor in performance.

  4. And, again, the only subtext is the text that is beneath those words. If you’ve divined some hidden meaning from my words, I’m afraid that they’re only your inference, not my implication.
