or lexical host, must also necessarily be the phonological host. This paper shows that the structural and phonological hosts need not be the same; i.e., clitics can simultaneously attach syntactically to a structural host, while attaching independently to a different phonological host. Thus the two-strategy assumption of clitic positioning and attachment is inadequate. Instead, three independent parameters are required. These binary parameters encode two structural notions-DOMINANCE and… Expand
Phrasal Clitics *
This study proposes an Optimality-theoretic model through which the various grammar components—semantics, syntax, the lexicon, morphology, and prosody—jointly determine the placement of clitics withExpand
What Are Clitics? Evidence from Balkan Languages
1. The Clitic Challenge Clitics are linguistic entities which do not fit neatly in the traditional division of labor: phonology, syntax, and morphology. Because they typically are subject to specialExpand
Revisiting the Phonology and Morphosyntax of Chechen and Ingush Verb Doubling
TLDR
Boskovic’s (2001) manuscript presents an overview of the field at the time, ranging from strongly syntactic approaches to strongly phonological approaches, and based on data from cases such as Serbo-Croatian clitics, argues against these unilateral analyses. Expand
ON THE STATUS AND POSITIONING OF VERBAL CLITICS
I. INTRODUCTION Three fundamentally different approaches to the status of special clitics in the grammar have emerged from generative studies of pronominal clitics since the 1970's. They can broadlyExpand
Serbo-croatian second position clitic placement and the phonology-syntax interface
TLDR
It will be shown that neither the relative linear positions of clitics within the clitic cluster nor the position of this cluster in a clause can be completely determined by the syntax, although the syntax does have a crucial role to play in at least the latter problem. Expand
Non-concatenative morphology as epiphenomenon
Somewhere between the system of syntax-semantics and the system of phonology, there is an interface in which representations legible to the one system are mapped to representations legible to theExpand
Revisiting verb doubling in Chechen and Ingush 2 . 1 Ditropic clitic Fieldwork
The study of clitics has been a fertile site for investigating matters of the syntax-phonology interface, arguably second only to phonological phrasing phenomena. For instance, a classical puzzle hasExpand
Second-position clitics in Czech: Syntactic or phonological?
Abstract Through a systematic analysis of the behavior of second-position clitics in Czech, this paper addresses issues that are also of interest in the general study of cliticization. It is arguedExpand

Positioning Romanian Verbal Clitics at Pf: an Optimality-theoretic Analysis*
This paper argues that Romanian auxiliary and pronominal clitics are phrasal affixes subject to a set of conflicting PF alignment constraints that are responsible for the clustering, rigid ordering,Expand
