Core case roles

While further investigating adjective-final SOV langages* I found the
underlinked lecture on the semantics of core cases.  I'm finding it
interesting.  The argument is that all core arguments to a verb take
the roles of agent, location or theme seems to fit in well with my own
thoughts on Rick Morneau's treatment of the same subject.  The
specification of the "patient" as a "location" may prove useful to me
in ensuring the semantic regularity of LC-01 morphology.

*(Specifically, I was investigating their use of adpositions - it
 seems Akkadian and Persian use prepositions, Tibetan postpositions.)
