Mine too ... In Ayeri, you'd use the locative marker _ea_
for each of 'in', 'on' and 'at'. 'During' would be _ling_
then, 'while' is _luga_. Since the Ayeri are supposed to
live in the tropics of their planet, dusk and dawn are *not*
durative events but punctual ones, like Yahya said.
 _ling_, adv, during < _(manga) ling_, prep, '(to the)
top of sth' < _ling_, n, 'top'
 _luga_, adv, until < _luga_, prep, 'among, between';
manga luga, prep, 'through'
