Linguistics / Morphology
Portuguese term or phrase: locacionais
This appears in a list.
It is a subcategory of "Intransitive verbs"
Along with:
1. cognitivos, descritivos
2. adjetivais
3. locacionais

I've translated 1 and 2 as cognitive/descriptive and adjectives, respectively. "Places" just doesn't seem to fit.
