AdpType: adposition type

Values: Ambi Comadp Prep Post

Western Armenian has prepositions, postpositions and ambipositions, but not circumpositions.

Ambi: ambiposition


Prep: preposition


Post: postposition


Comadp: dependent part of compound adposition

This value marks dependent first or second part of a compound adposition. This word cannot occur alone. Not all compound adpositions contain words marked Comadp. Many compound prepositions consist of prepositions and a noun (e.g. ի սեր “for the love of”, ի պատիվ “in honor of” ). Sometimes there are just two words, the first one is normal postposition and the second one is a secondary postposition (etymologically some other part of speech, but it has been frozen as a postposition) as in դեմ հանդիման “in front of”.
