The talk investigates spatial case marking in Tsez. Comrie and Polinsky (1998) argue for the decomposition of these forms into at least two morphemes (roughly Path and Place), and optionally others, like the distal marker. The current talk points out that the bi-morphemic analysis leaves several puzzles unanswered. To resolve them, I argue that we need a tri-componential underlying structure, augmenting the traditional Path and Place with Svenonius' AxPart.
