There are actually several adpositions with roots in other words.

Nemfa = ne-mì-pa'o (Two adpositions and a noun there, though mìfa is itself lexicalized as a noun or adverb)
Takip = ta-kip
Kxamlä = kxam-ìlä
pximaw = pxi-maw
pxisre = pxi-sre
rofa = ro-pa'o

While sometimes in languages through usage words get meanings a little different from their root, it is not something you could necessarily call just by looking at the definition.

N.K., I am not sure about fkip vs. kip.

I think it might be from fä + kip.
We learn from our mistakes only if we are made aware of them.
If I make a mistake, please bring it to my attention for karma.

That sounds about right to base it upon fäpa.
