Definition:

Cases expressing spatial relations (also semantic) can be grouped into four broad directional classes: cases expressing location ('at'), goal ('to'), source ('from'), and path ('through, along'). The basic terms for these are: locative, allative, ablative, and perlative. Additionally, the label terminative is used for a movement that goes all the way to its endpoint, and orientative - for a movement that goes only in the direction of its goal. [Kibort 2008b]

Status: Pending Add Spatial Case (as found in Potawatomi)

TerminativeCase seems to be the closest analogue to spatial case which is found in Potawatomi. Do we want to add this case?

Cases The structure underlying the spatial cases involves a projection of
Axial Part that is phonologically empty but syntactically present. This is
combined with Place, and in some situations Path. The case itself spells out
the Place or Path head ((50)-(51) and (52)-(53)), which merges with the Axial
Part.
