case: case marking

case relation is used for any case-marking element which is treated as a separate syntactic word, especially, postpositions. Case-marking elements are treated as dependents of the noun they attach to or introduce. The case relation aims at providing a more uniform analysis of nominal elements, postpositions and case: a nominal in an oblique case will receive the same dependency structure as a nominal introduced by a postposition. When case markers are morphemes, they are not divided off the noun as a separate case dependent, but the noun as a whole is analyzed as obl (if dependent on a predicate) or nmod (if dependent on noun).
