What is a fronted adverbial?

We use adverbials like adverbs. They are words or phrases that add more information to a verb, and explain how, when or where something happened.

Fronted adverbials are therefore are adverbials that we’ve moved to the front of the sentence, before the verb. They describe the rest of the sentence to come.
