Has anyone ever thought of different types of locative, as seperate cases?
Assuming |ba| means 'man', |ku| means 'eat'(no tense), |lo| means 'car',
|li| means 'road, and |zu| means sandwich. |-k| is nominative and |-b| is
'the man in the car ate a sandwich'
ku bak zub lot
eat man.NOM sandwich.ACC car.NLOC
'the man ate a sandwich that was in the car'
ku bak zub los
eat man.NOM sandwich.ACC car.ALOC
Verbal Locative |n|:
'the man ate a sandwich in the car'
ku bak zub lon
eat man.NOM sandwich.ACC car.VLOC
'the man ate a sandwich in the car, which was on the road'
ku bak zub lon lip
eat man.NOM sandwich.ACC car.VLOC road.SLOC
This could potentially be done with a Genitive case as well...
