TL;DR: What is the semantic field or the big picture behind the English 'of'?
I seek an explanation like this which exposes the underlying semantic field of ‘tally’.
of (as a Functional Morpheme) is too polysemous for me to query each individual meaning. Does the Semantic Field derive from its etymology:
PIE etymon is *apo = "off, away"; Proto-Germanic is *af = 'away from'?
PS: After my long tiresome enervated search, Google discovered a book that addresses my question briefly: pp 209-212, 235-236 of The Semantics of English Prepositions; Spatial Scenes, Embodied Meaning, and Cognition (Reprint ed, 2007) by Andrea Tyler, Vyvyan Evans.
