    we three

    Hello,

    Supposing the sentence: "My father, my sister and I went fishing". Would it be right to say "we three went fishing" ?

    Thanks

    Re: we three

    "The three of us..." would be the natural way.

    "We three" is normally only followed by "kings of orient are"

    I don't have any problem with "We three went fishing". I have no problem with Dave's suggestion either.
