This was the point I was trying to make with my sentences, which in
retrospect were more complicated than necessary to illustrate the

{vaS'a'vo' tera'Daq chegh} "he/she returns from the Great Hall to Earth"
{tera'Daq vaS'a'vo' chegh} does this mean "on Earth, he/she returns
from the Great Hall" or "he/she returns to Earth from the Great Hall"?

The latter feels like it's saying that {vaS'a'} is located on Earth.
WIth {X-vo' Y-Daq chegh}, this ambiguity does not exist.
