It's often said that changing word order serves to add emphasis to the element moved out of its normal place, but I have doubts. Take for example the sentence:
I spoke to Jim about the party on Tuesday.
If you change that to:
On Tuesday, I spoke to Jim about the party.
What is the effect? Most say that it emphasizes "On Tuesday", but to me, it sounds like the adverb "On Tuesday" is extra information that 'sets the scene', so to speak.
Suppose someone asked the question "When did you speak to Jim about the party?"
If you answered "On Tuesday, I spoke to Jim about the party." It sounds funny. Instead of emphasizing Tuesday, it sounds like you didn't even answer the question.
What do you think?
