With adjectives, you may have a period of both occurring, that is, you'd
sometimes have "white house", and sometimes "house white".  With
postpositions becoming prepositions, you might have a time of some
postpositions and some prepositions.  Sometimes postpositions can become
verbal prefixes, for instance, "John Bill with spoke" could become "John
with-spoke Bill".
