    In Zande expressions of position and motion are arranged on a gamut in correlation with increasing syntactic complexity. Topological relations, expressed by basic locative construction are at the left end, directed motion at the right end. Directed translational motion is marked by the preposition ku, which also marks angular location. Topological relations, in situ motion and undirected translational motion do not get a specific marking. This indicates the interrelatedness of stasis and motion on the one hand and undirected and directed motion on the other hand.

    Formulierungen zur Beschreibung von Position und Bewegung im Zande kann man entsprechend zunehmender Komplexität auf einer Skala anordnen. Topologische Beziehungen, die durch die grundlegende Lokativkonstruktionen ausgedrückt werden, finden sich am linken Ende, Ausdrücke gerichteter Bewegung am rechten Ende.English
