Adverbial Clauses are phrases that function as an adverb in a sentence. Adverbial Clauses can be used to show time (temporal clauses) or cause (causal clauses).
Temporal Adverbial Clauses (showing time):While I was fishing last year, I caught a fish.After we finished hiking for the day, we took a nap.
Causal Adverbial Clauses (showing cause):Because my sister knew how I felt, she took me to the mall.Since I had never been to Japan, I brought a guide book with me.
However, we can use "ING" to make these clauses shorter, provided that the subject in the adverbial clause is the same as the subject in the main clause.

Some adverbial clauses can also use "ED," however, the subjects of both parts of the sentence still must be the same.

The Reduced Adverbial Clause does not have to be the first clause in the sentence.
