If I want to emphasize one of two or more clauses of a sentence, is it better to put it at the front or at the back of the sentence?
Take the following sentences for example.
(1.1) Because I was ill for six month, I lost my job.
(1.2) I lost my job because I was ill for six month.
If I want to emphasize the reason, which one is better?
(2.1) When I was a child, I liked reading.
(2.2) I liked reading when I was a child.
If I want to emphasize the time, which one is better?
If there are some general rules for determining the clause order, please tell me.
Thanks in advance.
