    Felix Ameka notes in multiple later works that Ewe has both prepositions and postpositions, derived from verbs and nouns respectively. See *The Linguistic Construction of Space in Ewe* (1995) and ‘Prepositions and Postpositions in Ewe’ in Sauzet & Zribi-Hertz *Typologie des langues d’Afrique et universaux de la grammaire* (2003)
