Dear Raheleh,

If nobody has pointed it out yet, Masoud Mohammadirad has two recent papers on semantic maps of prepositional/oblique functions in Iranian languages in a typological journal.

Masoud Mohammadirad, Mohammad RasekhMahand (2017). "Instrumental semantic map in western Iranian languages", Language Typology and Universals/STUF, Vol 70 (4), pp. 579-610.
Masoud Mohammadirad, Mohammad RasekhMahand (2018). "Functions of the dative : An Iranian perspective", Language Typology and Universals/STUF, Vol 71 (4), pp. 539-575.

Subject: [Lingtyp] semantic map for '''râ'' in Iranian languages

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.
