1.2. A formal classification of adpositional phrases

This section discusses the four basic syntactic types of adpositions: prepositions, postpositions, circumpositions and intransitive adpositions. After a general discussion of the proposed classification, in which we also pay some attention to some more special instances of adpositions, we devote a separate section to each basic type.

    This topic is the result of an automatic conversion from Word and may therefore contain errors.
