I had one here on my old website: I haven't touched it in ages (it _is_ on my _old_ website, after all) but it lists all the cases I could find listed in the book on case that my library has, along with either a short description or an equivalent English preposition. (If anyone wants to look at it and offer additions or corrections, I may think of updating it onto my new page..) *Muke! --
