    To say that one sense of the term ‘clitic’ is to be identified with the phonology of the relevant elements does not, of course, actually provide in itself a theory of that dimension. In fact, the phonology of cliticization is closely bound up with the nature and status of the much broader theory of prosodic structure in language, and we can only understand phonological clitics by placing. This chapter begins by distinguishing simple clitics — referring to a purely phonological dimension of clitic-hood — from special clitics in more or less the sense of Zwicky (). It considers two systems that might be taken to illustrate simple clitics, whose behaviour can later be compared and contrasted with that of morphosyntactically unusual special clitics. The first of these is a.

    clitics are not unambiguously phrasal affixes and that in some con-texts they behave very much like lexical affixes. Two contexts provide ample evidence in favor of a lexical affix analysis of clitics. The first concerns cliticization on the verbal host, the second one involves clitic complements of so File Size: KB.   Overall, this book carefully examines the inflectional properties of clitics and argues that monosyllabic clitic pronouns behave like verbal affixes. Within this inflectional approach to cliticization, the term ‘clitic’ is regarded as a descriptive cover term, given that both monosyllabic and bisyllabic clitics are assimilated into existing Author: Ana R. Luis.

    Using data from a variety of languages, this book investigates the place of clitics in the theory of language structure, and their implications for the relationships between syntax, morphology and phonology. It is argued that the least powerful theory of language requires us to recognise at least two classes of clitics, one with the syntax of independent phrases and the other with the syntax. An argument that, contrary to Chomsky, head-movement is part of the narrow syntax. In Agreement and Head Movement, Ian Roberts explores the consequences of Chomsky's conjecture that head-movement is not part of the narrow syntax, the computational system that relates the lexicon to the interfaces. Unlike other treatments of the subject that discard the concept entirely, Roberts's monograph.

First published in This investigation shows that cliticization is not a totally unified phenomenon. Asymmetries in the behaviour of phonological and syntactic clitics show that no single principle predicts all clitic behaviour.

Zwicky distinguishes three types: simple clitics, special clitics and bound words. Broselow's data support the distinction of two types of languages, those which permit only cliticization onto adjacent elements, and those which combine movement and cliticization.
