Essentially, the rule is that the object comes first. Look at these several examples of postposition use:
- Ada dyna diakoka no, to kodibio. Tree branch on is it, the bird. (The object comes first).
- Bahy nin. Home at. (Not “At home”).
- D’osa bahy loko nro. (I go (the) house into). (Not, “I go into the house”.
Postposition use seems more affected by modern speech, but examples still exist. Garifuna has an orthography that affixes most postpositions directly to the object.
- Yaraun (There towards) (Not “towards there”).
- Balisin (Belice towards)
- Induragien (Honduras from)
Writers in Wayuu tend to use postpositions as a prefix as well. Many verbs in Wayuu have a case that reflects position, however.
- O’uneechi taya Maicaomuin (Maicao + amuin). (I shall go Maicao towards).
- Kaseeru pulu’ujaka pipialu’ujee sulu’u wuusu? (What are you going to take your house from on(it) (the)bus?) (Not “from your house”).
- Toikkeeru cha meetkaaralu’u (meetkaara + alu’u). (I shall sell it there (the) market in) (not “there in the market”).
In conclusion, using positions depends on the context. Having reviewed examples, I can say that I would write my lasts posts in Taino differently, but this is part of the process of revitalization. It appears, that whether the postposition will follow or precede the word depends on two factors 1) Context, whether the word is a direct or indirect object; and 2) whether the postpostition has been inflected for person or tense; and 3) the specific postposition being used; some have a specific place that they will always occupy.
Knowing this, look at the post in Taino and determine for yourself how you would articulate those statements.
