    Is changing the word order without changing the meaning possible?

    Hello all users!

    Let's consider a sentence that has one (the same) subject.

    Although she had little time, Susan managed to send her children off to school.

    As can be seen, there is only one subject in the sentence, namely, Susan. Susan = she.

    Is it possible to express the same sentence by replacing "she" with "Susan" and "Susan" with "she"?

    Although Susan had little time, she managed to send her children off to school.

    What do you think?

    Thank you.

    It's not only possible — it's natural and common.
