- I prevented you from going there.
What is the function of "from going there" ?
I think that it is an adverbial prepositional phrase because I have studied object complements and learned that object complements can be adjectives, adjective phrases, infinitive clauses, nouns, verb+ing forms, but I've never seen a prepositional phrase as an object complement.
So, I think that it is an adverbial prepositional phrase and that's why it can be placed in the beginning. Because we know that adverbial prepositional phrases can be located in the beginning.
From going there, I prevented you.
What do you think? Thanks.
