Dear professor Sumbatova,
Thank you for interesting video lectures. My questions are related to postpositions.
1. You mentioned locative adverbs that function as postpositions. Are there postpositions themselves as a class?
2. Talking about locative adverbs, are there any language changes happening in this category? Are they getting more postposition-like? Are there any cases in which native Dargwa speakers omit inflections?
