Prosecutive case

The prosecutive case (abbreviated PROS) is a grammatical case found in Tundra Nenets,[1] in Old Basque and, with spatial nouns, in Mongolian.[2] This is a variant of the "prolative case".

It is used to describe movement using a surface or way. An example is the phrase "by way of/through the house."
