Title: Clitic Doubling in the Balkan Languages
Edited By: Dalina Kallulli
Liliane Tasmowski
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=LA%20130
Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 130
Description:

This volume is a collection of articles on clitic doubling, a phenomenon
that has preoccupied generative linguists since the 1980s, when its
theoretical importance was noted. Clitic doubling is prevalent in the
Balkan languages. However, generative studies initially dealt with its
properties in Romance languages, with the Balkan patterns coming
increasingly into focus. Since the mid-nineties, these patterns presented a
variety of challenges to the generalisations reached on the basis of
Romance, while also raising new research questions. The volume deals among
other things with the following aspects of the phenomenon: its extension
within and outside the Balkan Sprachbund and the observed variation; its
realizational possibilities and the constraints on the status of the
doubled DP (direct or indirect object, pronominal or non-pronominal); its
semantics (definite, specific, presupposed, neither) and pragmatics (topic
or not, D-linked or not); its temporal and locational genesis; the
relationship between the clitic and its associate.
