'Emphasis through position' means giving importance to certain words in your sentence by where you place them within that sentence.

For example:

'She likes cats best, then rabbits and hamsters.' There is no special emphasis here.

'Cats are what she likes best, then rabbits and hamsters.' Here the word 'cats' is emphasised by being placed first, out of the normal word order.
