ADP: adposition

Definition

Ukrainian has only prepositions but no postpositions or circumpositions. They occur before a complement noun phrase (noun, pronoun) and they form a single structure with the complement to express its grammatical and semantic relation to another unit within a clause.

Some prepositions take the form of fixed multiword expressions, e.g. на відміну від  “in contrast to”, у зв’язку з  “in connection with”. The component words are then still tagged according to their basic use (на  is ADP, відміну  is NOUN, etc.) and their status as multiword expressions are accounted for in the syntactic annotation.
