Description The article investigates locative class markers in Shona and Luganda. It proposes an account that explains their peculiar behaviour, in particular their syncretism with non-locative classes. We argue for the presence of a silent PLACE in the structure, and provide reasons to think that the silent PLACE is silent bacause of phrasal spellout. We use the framework of Nanosyntax to model the facts.
