The placement of the prepositional phrase suggests the shop is in a cab.

He took a cab to the shop.

Yes, I'm nitpicking, but that's what grammar is about!

Hi Aspara Gus,
Thank you for your reply. Really?
If that is so, then the sentence should be, 'He takes a cab to the shop.' Right?

Yes. But I'm sure I'm one of the only (if not the only) volunteers here who would carp about such an error.

Hi Aspara Gus,
Thank you so much for your help and links. As I always say, 'Everything learnt, everything to be learn'. I don't know if that makes sense in English, Because my saying is Spanish. I just did a literal translation.
