ADP: adposition


Turkish only has postpositions. They occur after a complement noun phrase (or a nominal subordinate clause) and they form a single structure with the complement to express its grammatical and semantic relation to another unit within a clause.

A number of postpositions in Turkish are complex, derived from a closed set of nouns (see Göksel & Kerslake 2005, ch.17). Examples include, alt-ın-da “below”, arka-sı-nda “behind”, konu-su-nda “about”. We also mark these expressions as ADP when they are used as postpositions (TODO: this requires discussion).
