    Stephen Anderson’s important and much needed book Aspects of the theory of clitics. This is a tightly organized study, with each chapter filling in a portion of the overall formal landscape of the theory of clitics, and is a follow up on A’s earlier work on this topic (Anderson , , ). It relies on a large data base and has an. Aspects of the theory of clitics. [Stephen R Anderson] -- This work covers the grammar of clitics from all points of view, including their phonology, morphology and syntax. It also provides analyses of standard problems, such as English contracted.

    Aaron Halpern asserts that the theory of language requires the recognition of at least two distinct classes of clitics, one with the syntax of independent phrases and the other with the syntax of inflectional affixes. grammar allows pronominal clitics to be analyzed in one of several ways, the question of converging on the right analysis for each individual case arises again, together with the problem of undertermination of theory by the evidence. Although a uniform approach to the analysis of clitics is not forced, it isFile Size: KB.

    Abstract. In this paper 1, we will argue that there are a number of distinctions between the behavior of Germanic clitics and their Romance will argue that these distinctions are best explained if the clitics in the two language families are assigned a different status in terms of X-bar theory: Romance clitics are heads (la), which adjoin to heads, in accordance with the Cited by: 3. 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:

Aspects of the Theory of Clitics (Oxford Studies in Theoretical Linguistics) Stephen R. Anderson The first book to cover the grammar of clitics from all points of view, including their phonology, morphology, and syntax, and the first comprehensive survey of clitic phenomena for twenty years.

Covers the grammar of clitics in terms of their phonology, morphology, and syntax, as opposed to purely syntactic or phonological accounts. First comprehensive survey of clitic phenomena for 20 years.

Provides analyses of such standard problems as English contracted auxiliaries clitic doubling, clitic climbing, and the relation of clitics to agreement.

Free clitics,in contrast, result when some other constraint forces violations of Exhaustivity(PPhrase): the PPhrase thus con- tains a constituent lower in the hierarchy than a PWord, such as a stray syllable orFile Size: KB.

and results from language and automata theory. This book presents the theory of formal languages as a coherent theory and makes explicit its relationship to automata. The values of the parameters constrain possible clitics to eight types, each of which is illustrated in this paper. These parameters are encoded in the lexical subcategorization frame for clitics.

The contributors to this collection concentrate on second position clitics and other distribuitonal categories of clitics which arguably behave in a related fashion. Each paper deals in some depth with clitics from a particular language or group of languages, including Sanscrit, Hittite, Ancient Greek, Medieval Romance, European Portuguese.

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.

Within inflectional studies on cliticisation, it has been convincingly argued that clitics may either attach to a morphological host or a phrasal host (Klavans, ; Miller, ; Halpern, ; Spencer, ).

In this chapter, it is claimed that the distinction between morphological and phrasal attachment of clitics plays a crucial role in accounting for the distributional and scopal. The authors draw relevant generalizations across the Slavic languages and highlight the importance of these phenomena for linguistic theory.

He is particularly well-known for his contributions to morphophonological theory, inflectional morphology, and the theory of clitics. His first essays on clitics twenty years ago stimulated a flurry of research from a variety of scholars in what continues to be an important and developing area.This book is about the grammar of clitics.

It considers all points of view, including their phonology and syntax and relation to morphology. In the process, it deals with the relation of second position clitics to verb-second phenomena in Germanic and other languages, the grammar of contracted auxiliary verbs in English, noun incorporation constructions, and several other much discussed topics.Clitics are problematic for the theory of language in many different ways.
