yes, i forgot that something similar occurs also with locative nouns 
like /naDev/ (i remember that this, long time ago, was part of this 
but there's just no problem. /naDev/ is a locative noun by nature. that's all.

this is absolutely sufficient in order to understand what's a 
subject, object or header. but, for example, in order to understand 
the difference between the header nouns /batlh/, /naDev/, /DaHjaj/ 
you have to say "cases", or "X".
