The Bear

This morning in Morphology, my professor showed us a slide with several prepositional phrases from the language Lezghian. Below are my visual aids.

“Sev”   (Bear)

“Sev-rev”         (At the bears’)  (they probably just meant a plural [“bears”] here, but I like this better)

“Sev-rev-di”        (Toward the bear)

“Sev-rev-aj”         (Away from the bear)

“Sev-rex^h”           (Behind the bear)

 

“Sev-rex^h-aj”      (Out from behind the bear)

“Sev-rek”          (Under the bear)

“Sev-rek-di”            (To under the bear)

“Sev-re”          (In the bear)

“Sev-rej-aj”                 (Out of the bear)

“Sev-rel-aj”       (Off of the bear)

Bears: you are now ready to talk about them on your trip to Dagestan.
