i don't remember what i wanted to write. but "ghol" was not what i intended.

>How would a location (pa, naDev, Dat) be used as an adverb?
>naDev is the object of ghoS.
it's both an adverb and a noun. in <naDev yIghoS> <naDev> is a noun.
but it can be an adverb in other sentences, like <naDev jIQong>.
<batlh> is also both an adverb and a noun. if there was a suffix to
make <batlh> an adverb, it would be forbidden to use it, probably
(just like it's forbidden ot say <naDevDaq>).
