An Amerindian language spoken in the north of Colombia, Damana has a partic ularly rich series of locative cases. Its synchronic analysis also shows the links that exist between locative cases and grammatical cases. This state of affairs has a certain compar ative interest. That does not mean that the etymological connection that joins locative and grammatical cases is the same in Basque as in Damana. The comparison with other languages would certainly provide other connections. Here, what may be interesting from the comparative point of view is to see how a linguistic possibility is instantiated in a natural language, and to draw some parallels.
