A workshop on second position clitics will be held on Saturday July 10th
(and possibly Sunday the 11th) as a supplementary event to the Linguistic
Institute held in Columbus, Ohio. The organizers (Arnold Zwicky and Aaron
Halpern) are soliciting papers that combine a theoretical approach to some
aspect of second position with a relatively detailed description of a

The proposed format of the workshop is to have around ten papers, 30
minutes in length, with 10 minutes for discussion. It is expected that
the papers will be collected into a volume; written responses by workshop
participants will be invited (and published along with the main papers).

If you want to take part in this workshop, send a version of your
proposed paper (suitable for presentation within half an hour), or an
extended abstract, to the organizers at the address below. Submissions
should reflect a knowledge of previous work on (second position) clitics.

Some topics of interest to theoretical linguistics are given below. (This
list is not intended to be exhaustive, just indicative.)

 - The nature of the principles or mechanisms for ensuring that
 material is located in second position (syntactic, prosodic,
 - Accounts of the variation from language to language as to what
 counts as second position (e.g., after the first word, after the
 first syntactic constituent) and how the variants are related
 - Why particular constructions don't allow clitics after the first word of
 a clause in a language in which this position is otherwise available
 - Fronted phrases, and whether they count as first or are skipped
 - Comparisons of 2P clitics with different functions (pronominal,
 (auxiliary) verb, adverbial/particle)
 - Relationships between 2P and V2 (second position clitics and
 verb-second constructions)S
 - Relationships between second position clitics and head-located clitics
 (attached to verbs).
 - Relationships between scrambling (giving either free constituent order or
 free word order) and second position for clitics.
