I propose the following componential definition of the locative phrases:
Where FACE is to be interpreted to mean that the location in question is viewed as a point, surface, area or volume which 'faces' or 'opposes' the object located there.

are there any which are particularly worth noting (i.e. which differ from the common account / the meanings given in adams' book linked above)?
