After reviewing, from a grammaticalization perspective, the main stages in
the evolution of Italian object clitic pronouns, the book discusses the
distinctive morphosyntactic, semantic, and pragmatic features of Italian

In particular, the book offers an original study of the most common
examples of so-called verbi procomplementari, verbs which are characterized
by the incorporation of clitics that no longer function as pronouns, and
which are widely used in present-day Italian. Their emergence involves both
grammaticalization of the clitic pronoun into an obligatory element, and
lexicalization of the verb+clitic sequence. This study is essentially
descriptive and maximally data-driven. The discussion of grammaticalization
and lexicalization is reduced to the essentials and aims primarily at
defining how these terms, which have received different and at times
divergent interpretations, are employed in the book.

The book is accessible to a wide and varied readership, which includes
Italian and Romance linguists of functional and formal orientation, Italian
language scholars, grammaticalization scholars interested in new case
studies, as well as students of language change and variation.
