    Sammanfattning

    In this essay, we aim to show that the different functions of the Finnish stative locative cases can be derived from a common abstract scheme as extensions and specialisations. The main difference between the inner and outer locative cases in Finnish is shown to be their primary domain: for the inner cases it is three-dimensional space and for the outer cases it is two-dimensional space. We will also describe the metaphoric and pragmatic factors, which have their part to play in the grammaticalisation of the locative cases and the postposition päällä ‘on’.
