80 Coming from named places

Description

This feature examines ‘motion-from’ constructions. As different kinds of sources can be marked differently, we only take named places into account, e.g. names of villages, cities. In expressions like ‘My mother returned from Belair’, many languages do not use a spatial adposition or case. Other languages use adpositions (prepositions, postpositions, circumpositions). Serial verb constructions may also express ‘motion-from’.
