Adpositions are morphologically nominals that have defective inflection patterns. Some of them come from forms of nominals that are no longer used. The adpositions are classified along whether they take possessives clitics, or not. They also have slight syntactic and semantic differences, the syntactic differences are coded in the analyses to be compatible with other languages, but for most intents and purposes all adpositions can appear in both syntactic positions, after and before the head word.


Adpositions examples:

  • alta: alta+Po
  • alleen: alle+Po+PxSg3
  • irti: irti+Pr
  • irtikö: irti+Pr+Qst
