Dear all,
I have been gathering data about the functions of the postposition ''râ" in
one of Iranian languages called "Tâtic" which has some subgroups and
dialects. The postposition "râ" has many functions in these dialects
including benefactive, dative, place/time adverbials, experiencer subject,
emphatic reflexive, accusative, reason, possession, commitative/
instrumental, location/ goal. Now I want to arrange the data in a paper and
I think it is best I use the semantic map as a model to show these
functions in each dialect and I have some doubts about the arrangement of
these functions in a semantic map.
I just wanted to know if such a semantic map model has been suggested in
previous literature for languages in general or for Iranian languages? And
if anybody has alternative suggestions for this model.

Many thanks in advance.
