I just realized... if a affix is a suffix at the end of the word, a
prefix at the start, and an infix in the middle, then an adposition must
be an inposition in the middle... and if the n assimilates to m as seems
likely, you get imposition. :) Reminds me of spanish "impuesto"....
literally imposition, but usually used to mean tax.
If something that crops up in the middle of words counts as an
adposition if it satisfies Thomas Weir's criteria that is... *shrugs*
I'm not sure he meant to include things inserted in the middle. :)
