Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of references relevant to the discussion of enumerating the most common postpositions found in Ket, discussing their functions and their etymological relations to other lexical items found in the language. Some treatments of Ket differentiate between "true" postpositions, and postpositional nouns, the latter being concrete nouns usually designating some locational notion, or a body part, which is used metaphorically to indicate such a notion. The number of such postpositional nouns may be regarded as principally open, delimited only by the number of semantically suitable nouns.

Keywords: Ket; postpositional nouns
