    right up front

    What does "right up front" mean? Is it physical or "first of all"?

    ex)Let's deal with a cliche right up front : figures lie and liars figure. Like most cliches, it contains a grain of truth...

    Re: right up front

    Hi keannu,

    IMO, it means right before we start with a deeper discussion, before we speak of anything else. See the definition of "up front" in thefreedictionary.com
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.
