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 , Optimality Theory,
Minimalism). Clitic/affix phenomena provide a rich range of data, not only
for the identification of an affix vs. clitic, but also for the best way to
explain ordering constraints, some of which are contradictory. A range of
languages are considered, including Romance and Slavic languages, as well
as Turkish, Greek, Icelandic, Korean, and Passamaquoddy. Moreover, several
articles consider dialectal microparameterization, notably in Spanish,
French, and Occitan. This volume thus reflects current debate on issues
such as clitic ordering constraints, the relationship of clitics to
inalienable possession and the left periphery, and templatic approaches to
affixes vs. clitics while examining a broad range of languages.
