 for Subordinary
From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  Subordinary \Sub*or"di*na*ry\, n. (Her.)
     One of several heraldic bearings somewhat less common than an
     ordinary. See Ordinary.
     [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: Different writers name different bearings as
           subordinaries, but the bar, bend, sinister, pile,
           inescutcheon bordure, gyron, and quarter, are always
           considered subordinaries by those who do not class them
           as ordinaries.
           [1913 Webster]
