    28) Az elative case nemcsak from (inside) jelent, de out of fordítást lehet pótolnia is.
    Az ablative case jelent: from, from near, away from

    elé – to the front of
    elől – from (the front of)
    alól – inkább from under
    mellé és mellett – nemcsak next to, de beside is
    mellől – from beside
    közül – nemcsak from between és of, hanem from among is

    vmin, vkin kívül nem jelent beside sg, sy, de inkább out of sg, sy, vagy apart from sg, sy
    vmin alul = nemcsak below, de at the bottom of sg, sy is
    vmin innen nem jelent over sg, de at, vagy at the side of
    vmin, vkin túl nem jelent beside sg, sy, de inkább on the other side of sg
    nem vagyok biztos, vajon vmin végig = along sg. Az én forrásomok mutatnak csak: végig = to the end. Milyen forrásból állapította meg, hogy vmin végig = along sg?
    vmivel, vkivel szemben = counter to sg, sy is hozzáillő
