Message 2: Proclitic deletion

Subject: Proclitic deletion

There is an example in English of an enclitic which is subject to an
optional rule-based deletion, and is the topic of a discussion of prestige
preferences (Labov) , explained on the basis of the value of it's syntactic
residue, I am wondering if among the world's languages whether there is an
example of proclitic erasure, perhaps a discourse related one as in the
following:

1. Tu me vois?
2. Je [te] vois!

I am looking to understand more fully the distinction between simple
clitics and special clitics and any references will be appreciated.

Subject: word for egg yolk and egg white

Is there anyone who knows of a lg in which the word for "egg yolk" and
"egg white" is the same? If so, could you please respond to the address
below, giving the term and the lg (and family too if it's an obscure lg)?

Thanks,
ashlee bailey
