Now that a comprehensive characterization of adpositions (Adps) has been given in Chapter 2, this chapter studies them from the morphological point of view, showing the diversity they exhibit in this respect. This will be done in four steps. Section 3.1 first examines the distribution of Adps in the languages of the world, as viewed by various authors. Section 3.2 studies the word-order characteristics of Adps, and the Adp types these word-orders produce. Section 3.3 examines some special morphological characteristics of Adps and Adp-phrases. Section 3.4 examines the relationships between Adps and the main lexical units, verbs and nouns.

Keywords:   adpositions, case systems, word-order, verbs, nouns, grammar
