Everywhere. Everywhere. Everywhere. In bud and flower, birth, abortion and death, desire, wish and regret. In 'the' also. And in prepositions as in *towards an optimal auxlang*. Prepositions are predicates like verbs and nouns anyway and they are so considered by Chinese, Japanese, Indonesian, etc. So they can have aspect too.
