ADP: adposition

Definition

Adposition is a cover term for prepositions and postpositions. Adpositions belong to a closed set of items that occur before (preposition) or after (postposition) a complement composed of a noun phrase, noun, pronoun, or clause that functions as a noun phrase, and that form a single structure with the complement to express its grammatical and semantic relation to another unit within a clause.

Certain multiword expressions, such as ενάντια σε, γύρω από are adpositions. The component words are tagged according to their basic use (ενάντια is an ADV, από is an ADP, etc.), the two words are connected with the fixed dependency relation and the first word is used as a conventional “head”.
