Reverse Order Concept -- [C3B]
(author unknown)
 C3B:

 Language:

Break up the call into its component parts, and do the parts in reverse order.

Reverse Order Recoil:

 førReverse Order Recoil efterStep & Fold efterBox Recycle (færdig)
Reverse Order Travel Thru:

 førReverse Order Travel Thru efterAs Couples 1/4 Right efterPass Thru (færdig)
Reverse Order Diamond Chain Thru:

 førReverse Order Diamond Chain Thru efterCenters Cast Off 3/4 efterVery Centers Trade efterDiamond Circulate (færdig)

Note: Some callers simply say Reverse when they mean Reverse Order. This can often be ambiguous. Consider Reverse Recoil: does the caller want a Reverse (Mirror) Recycle then Step & Fold, or does the caller want a Step & Fold then Split Recycle?

CONTRAST THE FOLLOWING (Starting from Parallel Waves):

• Reverse Order Split Turn The Key:
Hinge; Split Counter Rotate 1/4; Trade. Ends in Columns.
• Split Reverse Order Turn The Key:
Hinge; Lockit; Trade. Ends in a Tidal Wave.

In the latter case, you hear the word Split first, and hence you must divide the starting formation into two 2 x 2s. Each 2 x 2 then does the call.

See also Reverse The Top [C3B] which is a Reverse Order Spin The Top.
