I'm not sure if this question has been asked before (if it has I would be more than grateful if somebody could direct me to the thread discussing it) so here it goes: what is the correct worder (or what are the correct possible words orders) in case you have "with" in a sentence and "with" is connected to the subject? Sorry for my sloppy language... I'm quite far from being a grammarian, this is only something I've been wondering about for quite a while now (FYI I'm not a native speaker). Here are a few examples of what I have in mind:
- I went to the cinema on Sunday with my mother.
- I went to the cinema with my mother on Sunday.
- With my mother I went to the cinema on Sunday.
- I went, with my mother, to the cinema on Sunday.
... now my problem is that to my non-native ears all of these sound more or less okay (although 2. is a bit weird and 4. sounds a bit archaic to me). So is there a rule? I've also found that this is supposed to be called an instance of the "comitative case" but haven't found any concise rules explaining usage so far.
