The object of /leng/ is the destination you are traveling to. The following
two sentences mean exactly the same thing:
They both mean "I travel to Europe." Putting /-Daq/ on the object is
If you're talking about traveling inside an area, that area is not your
destination, so it's not the object:
I travel in Europe.
Here, you've got the sentence /jIleng/ "I travel," which doesn't state your
destination (no object). Then you're telling me where you do this
(EuropeDaq, "In Europe").
The suffix /-vaD/ is only used to indicate the beneficiary of an action, not
a location. It means "whatever the verb is, it was done for this noun."
