Aspects of the Theory of Clitics

This chapter focuses on the morphosyntax of special clitics. Starting from the classic descriptive generalizations of Zwicky, Klavans, Kaisse, and others about the locations in which these are found, the chapter asks what kind of theory might be responsible for getting them there. The chapter concludes that morphology and not syntax furnishes the appropriate context for understanding them. Special clitics, that is, constitute a morphology of phrases — a suggestion that has often been made.

Keywords:   special clitics, morphosyntax, Zwicky, Klavans, Kaisse, morphology, syntax
