# NLP Definitions: Analog Submodality

An analog (analogue) submodality carries a mental description that is like a non-discrete (or continuous) variable. For example, the value of a range is specific to “1 to 7”, any of the numbers there is a specific variable, but the value at 1.17 is within the continuous or analog scale.

In NLP, an analog submodality is one where we can control it like a continuous scale. There are non-discrete measures when one refers to grades of “color” or “size” within the submodality description.
