As a typical interface phenomenon, clitics have become increasingly
important in linguistic theory during the last decade. The present
book contributes to the recent discussion and first provides a
comprehensive overview of clitic sequencing, clitic placement and
clitic doubling in the major Romance languages. In addition, new data
from a northern Italian dialect are introduced. The author then gives
a critical summary of the current morphological analyses of clitic
phenomena. She also discusses recent Optimality-theoretical analyses
of clitic combinations and clitic placement and shows how these
analyses can be improved upon when we also consider a morphological
treatment of clitics. This book provides innovative solutions to
clitic phenomena within the framework of a constraint-based
morphological theory and will be of interest not only to
morphologists, syntacticians and those working on the grammar of
Romance languages, but also to linguists who are interested in the
org! anisation of the grammar and the lexicon.
