Tell me if I'm wrong, but it seems to me that an interesting ambiguity (at least in english, japanese and french I guess, the other languages I don't know) lies in the object that "from London" defines : is it "a book" that comes from London or "I" who's ordering from London ?
What sentences could differentiate the two possible meanings ?
Or is there actually an ambiguity in languages other than french ?
