Changing the word order in sentences does not always have to change the meaning.

For example:

Peter walked to school but ran home.

Peter ran home but walked to school.

Sometimes, however, the meaning can be changed by re-arranging the word order.

For example:

First I'm going shopping, then I'm going to cook.

First I'm going to cook, then I'm going shopping.
