Generalized pattern. The destinative postposition is -tzat. When marking the destinative, it is is always preceded by a genitive marker -(r)en. Like any other postposition, it can be combined with the relational postposition -ko (English of, Spanish de), as an adnominal modifier, immediately preceding a NP.

(1a) Liburu hau zuretzat da
book this.ABS you.GEN.DEST (3ABS).be
‘This book is for you.’
(1b) Zuretzako liburua ederra da
you.GEN.DEST.REL book.ABS beautiful (3ABS).be
‘The book for you is beautiful.’

Variational pattern. This postposition can be combined with the relational postposition -ko, even in contexts where no NP is attested.

(2) Liburu hau zuretzako/tako/dako da
book this.ABS you.GEN.DEST.REL 3SG.ABS.be
