--- Quote from: Eana Unil on June 09, 2013, 03:15:05 pm ---Eyawr... ngaru tìyawr. Got confused because german dict-navi.com says about mì loc. only, not loc./temp. or something like that :)

--- End quote ---

well. that's because it is a location-related word. but not only a location-related word. mì is actually quite broad. almost exactly like ta. I think it's probably not listed as temp because it's not a word like krr, trr, set, etc. but I suppose it wwouldn't hurt to add loc./temp. so that it is more clear that it could be used in a temporal sense. (like adp. ta- can too, I think.) :-\

This may in fact be something worthy of asking Frommer. Using "in" for time is pretty Englishy to my ears - neither Japanese nor Chinese uses 'in' unconditionally (well Japanese uses the dative に which also goes with places, but only with stative verbs; Chinese uses 的时候, translating word-for-word into "a krr" ;))
