Comment:
As Nickel & Wilner (1984: 40) note, location phrases are formed with the locational preposition na, which may then be followed by another locational marker such as ondro ‘under’, ini ‘in’, tapu ‘top’, etc. The latter items can also be used independently of na. Na used by itself simply marks location or a goal.
