adverbials (was: naDev)

Steven lab:

>{naDev} in canon:
>"It is worth noting at this point that the concepts expressed by the 
>English adverbs here, there, and everywhere are expressed by nouns 
>in Klingon: naDev hereabouts, pa' thereabouts, Dat everywhere. These 
>words may perhaps be translated more literally as "area around 
>here," "area over there," and "all places," respectively. Unlike 
>other nouns, these three words are never followed by the locative 
>suffix [-Daq]." (TKD 27)

which makes no difference to: "these three words can act like 
adverbials without taking the locative suffix [-Daq]."
