ADP: adposition

Adpositions is a term that covers both prepositions and postpositions. Welsh only has prepositions.

Inflected prepositions

Some of the most common simple prepositions can be inflected to mark pronominal objects. These are referred to as inflected prepositions.

Inflected prepositions can be followoed by the corresponding pronoun

In the Welsh Treebank, inflected prepositions are annotated as multitoken words … wrthym …

...
16-17   wrthym  _       _       _       _       _       _       _       _
16      wrth    wrth    ADP     iprep   _       17      case    _       _
17      ni      ni      PRON    indep   Number=Plur|Person=1|PronType=Prs       15      obl     _       _

if there is a overt pronoun, we annotate as follows: … amdanyn nhw…

8-9     amdanyn _       _       _       _       _       _       _       _
8       am      am      ADP     iprep   _       9       case    _       _
