How to use "Conglutination" in context?

Conglutination is a term used in linguistics to describe a type of grammar in which predominantly - usually, but not always - postpositions are used to indicate constituencies of nouns. In other words, the constituents of a sentence are not explicitly shown. The result is that the sentence often appears to be a mass of words without a logical connection between them. The term is derived from the Latin word conglomerare, meaning "to join together".

This type of grammar is most often seen in European languages, where it is more common to indicate constituency with postpositions rather than articles.
