    Default order of adjuncts

    Dear teachers,

    Would you please tell me which order should I respect and why?

    a) I went to Paris with my parents by train last summer.
    b) I went with my parents to Paris by train last summer.
    c) I went to Paris by train last summer with my parents.

    Thank you in advance.

    Default Re: order of adjuncts

    There are 24 different ways [4X3X2X1] you could change the order. All of them would be correct.
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....
