Except for its subtype [ss Approximator], there are no prototypical adpositions for this category in English: wherever quantity–quantified relations are marked by a preposition, the preposition is on the quantified thing, and is thus labeled [ss QuantityItem].

[ss QuantityValue] can, however, appear as the scene role with very specific predicates like in [exref 001 QuantityValue]:

- [ex 001 "The deaths numbered [p en/in QuantityValue--Locus] the thousands. ([ss QuantityValue--Locus])"]

- [ex 002 "There were thousands [p en/of QuantityItem] deaths. ([ss QuantityItem])"]
