It takes clitics from syntactic, phonological, morphological, etc. perspectives and provide a general survey from a number of languages (related & unrelated). Necessary to note, still, is the fact that this book does not exclusively set out criteria to differentiate between clitics & affixes, even if some tests and properties are shown/5. This book is the first introduction to clitics, providing a complete summary of their properties, their uses, the reasons why they are of interest to linguists and the various theoretical approaches that have been proposed for them. The book describes a whole host of clitic Cited by: This work argues in favour of a unitary theory for free clitics, such as those we find in Romance languages, and bound affixes, which are typical of Bantu languages. Using a Clitic shell framework, as in Manzini and Savoia’s recent works, I will claim that both Romance clitics and Bantu affixes are best analysed as arguments of the verb rather than agreement markers. In this volume, the relationship between clitics and affixes and their combinatorial properties has led to a serious discussion of the interface between syntax, morphology, semantics, and phonology that draws on a variety of theoretical perspectives (e.g., HPSG, Pages:

KARI Graduate School of Language, Area and Culture Studies, Tokyo University of Foreign Studies ABSTRACT The distinction between the afﬁ x and the clitic is sometimes not easy to make, as clitics also have some characteristics of afﬁ xes.

Affixes can attach to other affixes, but not to material containing clitics. An example of differing analyses by different linguists is the discussion of the possessive ('s) in English, some linguists .

A minimalist view on inflectional paradigms: the expression of person and number in subjects and objects Dieter Wunderlich (Düsseldorf), Mannheim Workshop, 1. Introduction The notion of inflectional paradigm has been used for centuries, and even longer.1 Everyone who ever looked into a classical grammar book knows the kind of tableaus in which. In the literature, one can find different criteria proposed to distinguish words, clitics and inflectional affixes. However, these criteria are at best strong tendencies, and one can readily find some cases in the languages of the world in which the. To do this, I redefine the paradigm function so that for a given lexeme and set of properties it specifies (i) a sequence of affixes/clitics realizing a given set of morphosyntactic properties.
