    Hi there,

    I have a rather silly question.
    I was just writing an email when a question arose: are these two options corrects? and, in case they are, which one sounds more accurate?

    - if you could PLEASE send me it again, I would be thankful
    - if you could send me it again PLEASE, I would be thankful

    I think I prefer the first one, but, don't know why, I'm not sure.

    Many thanks.

    There's no such thing as a silly question.

    Both forms are correct as far as I'm concerned. Incidentally, I would use "grateful" rather than "thankful".

    Ok,
    Thank you for the "grateful" suggestion.
    (isn't it curious? you are a British in Spain and I'm a Spaniard in Britain)
