Discuss the Article : Six Meanings of 在

To most students of Chinese language, 在 is introduced first as a verb indicating a location of somebody or something in relation to a reference point. This is one of the important meanings, but there are others...
Can you say "我在1998出生了"？If not - why?
The explanation given here while detailed is a little confusing to follow because your use of adverbs and verbs and such words words as constituent are note correct. This article would really benefit from input of a native English Speaker. If you would like I would be willing to discuss with you ;P. In this way we will both benefit from each others input.
Thank you for the article. Very helpful.
One question: What do you mean by "constituent"?
Is that like a "predicate"?
The only quarrel that I have with this article is the inclusion of other characters that alter the meaning of 在, so it doesn't really discuss just 在.
