This sounds like you are deliberately trying to pick a fight. I did consider
cases when the adverbials do not come before the locatives (and other type
5s); I stated that by "may, and so often do, and usually do." If you insist
on my admitting that there exists cases wherein the adverbial does not "head"
the sentence, of course I admit it.
I am trying to point out that using words other than those used in TKD need
to be used with students to clarify, expound, and illucidate rather than
confuse. Do not hide the true intent of my message.
