Hungarian spatial adpositional phrases exhibit very similar properties to those in other languages in that they can denote places and paths, and their structural ordering is such that path-denoting postpositions are outside place-denoting ones. One type of postpositional elements (the ‘dressed’ Ps) share various syntactic propertiesmwith oblique case suffixes, while members of the other group of post positions (‘naked’ Ps) are more like particles. All of these, however, are generated in an extended PP-structure with designated positions for place, path and direction.
