    Some might wonder about the values of some of the features, such as "adpositions" (huh? Klingon has adpositions?!). If you read the description of the features in WALS, it will become clear why I chose these values. If you want to object and change a feature, please tell me. - André

      You can add a little description for some of the features, for instance the "Person marking on adpositions"-one. Just hit the "Edit"-link next to the feature in question in the list above.
