Can anyone help me understand the word order in this sentence?

What does "immer" reinforce here? It looks redundant from an English language point of view.

"immer noch" is more emphatic than "noch".

It puts emphasis on the word 'noch.' It would be like saying, "His parents are still living there."

Why can't it be "His parents live there still however"? Okay, it's a bit clunky as a sentence, but surely the meaning is identical?

As a native English speaker, you would be understood, but it is an awkward sentence. "His parents still live there, however", or "However, his parents still live there" would be more natural.

What is the sense that 'jedoch' has that 'but' doesn't?

It should work fine, depending on context. Da is a "close" there, dort is a "farther" there - i.e. over there.

Except when I answered "However, his parents still live over there" it said I was wrong. It probably should have accepted my answer though.

"His parents, however, still reside there" is perfectly correct.

When does one use "Allerdings" and when does one use "jedoch"?
