1. Czech has only Prepositions, no postpositions.

2. For the disambiguation of word forms belonging to declension parts of speech it seems necessary to include the information about the case which each Preposition requires.

3. A preposition can be contracted with a pronoun; such a preposition has Formation=c(ompound). Combinations

S p s g bez, kromě
S p s d k, proti
S p s a pro, mimo
S p s l o, v, při
S p s i s, pod
S p c - naň, zač MSD Index

This index gives the list of morphosyntactic descriptions (MSDs) and their features.
