This introductory chapter begins with a brief discussion of the concept of clitics. The aim of the book is then set out, which is to explore both of these senses of clitic, their interrelations, and the implications of their analysis for the theory of grammar more generally. The general perspective will be one that grows out of the theory of A-Morphous Morphology, where clitics are regarded as the phrasal analog of (word-level) morphology. An overview of the chapters included in this volume is presented.
