Dative is also `extended' by the addition of ulle `within' to indicate `interiority', (perhaps the Finnish `inessive' as contrasted with `adessive' is a good term here) i.e. a kind of `deeper' locative than the kind of location provided by the plain seventh case. That is,
a. viittu-kk-ulle irukku `It is within the house'contrasts with
b. viittu-le irukku `It is in the house'in the sense that (a) emphasizes the interiority, inclusion, surroundedness of an object--that something is deep in the heart of something, while (b) merely states that X is in something. When used with verbs of motion, dative + ulle emphasizes that something penetrated into the core or interior of something, (cf. Finnish illative) while plain dative may only indicate `allative' position:
c. viittu-kk-ulle pooyirukkaaru `He went right into the house'Dative + ulle may also be used also to express the equivalent of English `among', i.e.
d. viittu-kku pooyirukkaaru `He went to the house, he went home'
e. avarkalukkulle naalu peyarai araittaan.In modern spoken, however, the locative would be more likely be used:
`He called four among them' (Arden 1942:189)
f. avangaL-le naalu peere areccaan. `ibid.'
