5. It helps us talk to people at any place where they are.

6. It helps us talk to people wherever they are.

7. It helps us talk to people no matter where they are.
[Can #5 mean either #6 or #7? Or does #5 mean #6 alone?]

  • English -

    Yes, in this case, "go" or "may go" are okay.
    However, when speaking of a method (how will you get there?), how and ever are two words, not one. However is a conjunction. "Your thesis is interesting, however, it is wrong." "How ever (with a push mower, a scythe, or a power mower) you cut the grass, it must be cut today."

    5, 7, and 7 mean the same. #5 is awkward.
