Everett, Daniel, (1996) Why there are no Clitics. An alternative perspective
on pronominal allomorphy. SIL, Arlington.

This book argues for the thesis that pronominal clitics, pronouns , and
agreement affixes are allomrophs of one another, derived from lexical
storage of individual grammatical features, which are then spelled out
as pronouns, affixes, or clitics depending on how they are stacked as well
as where they are inserted.
