If the modifier is in the front of the sentence, I try to move it. If it moves and still makes sense, such as your example...

You dont have to recognize the subject first. You need to recognize middle men first. Middle men are prepositional phrases, noun phrases, nonessential clauses, and resumptive modifiers (sometimes).

i will connect this thread with the actual question.

Here is the breakdown:
(Out of America's fascination) (with all things antique) has grown a market (for bygone styles) (of furniture and fixtures) that is bringing back the chaise lounge, the overstuffed sofa, and the claw-footed bathtub.

the subject does the action.
The market has grown
market is the subject
has grown is the verb
the sentence has a subject verb inversion.

This technique is quite helpful. You're doing a great job BMW!
