Inelative case


Inelative case

The inelative case expresses the notion "from inside" (ie. "out of").

It can be found in the Lezgian language. [ [http://peterlin.jzn.pl/lezgi/casesystem.html The case system of Lezgi ] ] For example:

*"Варшавадай Тегьрандиз саки вад югъ рехъ ава."
*"Varshavadaj Tehrandiz saki vad jugh reqh ava."
*There's almost five days of travel from Warsaw to Tehran.

In Lezgian, it can also expression the notion "(in return) for". For example:

*"Заз гайи куьмекдай ваз сагърай лугьузва."
*"Zaz gaji kymekdaj vaz saghraj luhuzwa."
*I thank you for the help you have given me.
