Thanks. That matched my understanding.

I’ve seen “locative” used for {-Daq} before but until your recent message I don’t think I’ve seen “ablative” for {-vo'}. Is this a common convention, or just something that you use personally? Could {-vaD} be described as “dative”, using this same alien grammatical terminology? Maybe causal for {-mo'}?

I was about to also wonder if one could imagine a null syntactic marker (like the null prefix) for nominative and accusative, but that wouldn’t be right, since both of those can take {-'e'}.
