Reminds me of a simple map of Latin lative cases I used for Tunu. But it was=20
too many new verbal classifiers mostly not related to semantic field of noun=
so I gave up. Have a look at Watyaisa or Christophe's Notya for a full map.
ACC : in direction to the base
ABL : away from the base
ad =3D to or until the base or its location
in =3D into the base
trans =3D into and throughout the base
per =3D through the base
de =3D from the base
ab =3D from location of the base
ex =3D from inside the base
in =3D inside the base
