Comment:
Ad Feature 4 "Order of adposition and noun phrase": The general preposition na here marks a locative complement without contributing a specific meaning. Ad Feature 80 "Going to named places": This example illustrates that by itself, waka 'travel (around)' does express 'motion' but no direction. To express 'motion-to', go 'go' needs to be present (cf. Example 8).
