The distinction between two localization markers conveying the idea of location in Ground is also found in Lezgian, Rutul, Agul, Tabasaran, and Aqusha Dargwa, which fall into the third type.
In Lezgian and Rutul, location in substance is expressed by means of both 1N and INTER forms, but only IN forms can be used for location in container.
It should be noted that both localization markers can be used in the same situation in Lezgian and Rutul.
Agul also has 1N forms of substances and, like Lezgian and Rutul, uses them if the structure of the Ground is irrelevant in a given context.
Again, like Agul, Lezgian, and Rutul, Tabasaran uses IN forms of nouns denoting substances when the physical structure of a Ground is irrelevant.
In Rutul one plural marker -bir is only used with inanimate nouns (Alekseev 1994: 218).
