Hi,

what does the "as noted" mean when used at the beginning of a sentence

means "as noted above" or "it shall be noted that"?

When a writer writes 'as noted', it usually means that this matter has been mentioned earlier. It's rather like saying to the reader, 'You should remember this from before'. The mention may be earleir in this text, or earlier in some other discussion of the topic.

eg As noted by Dr. Smith in his book, 'A History of Frogs', ...

eg As noted in the Washington Post newspaper this morning, ...

as noted above - means something has already been mentioned in this text.

It should be noted that The writer is saying 'Pay attenton to this thing that I'm going to tell you now, because it is important'.

Best wishes, Clive

Clive,

Thanks a lot

Actually I mean the circumstance where there is a comma behind the "As noted". For example,

As noted, Company A will be acquired by Company B.

Does your explanation apply to such circumstance?
