Fronted Adverbials

This week you will continue to learn about Fronted Adverbials.


A fronted adverbial is a word, phrase or clause that is placed at the start of a sentence. They are used to explain how (manner), when (time) or where (place) something happens. A fronted adverbial is separated from the main clause with a comma. For example:

At the park, I lost my coat.
