Challenging Clitics deals with multiple sides of cliticisation from different theoretical frameworks and with data from a number of different languages. Unlike many other books on clitics where clitics are considered from a mere syntactical point of view, this book also discusses the acquisition of clitics; the role of the PF in cliticisation; the morphophonological aspects of cliticisation; and historical change – to name but a few of the approaches presented. As such this collection presents cutting edge theoretical considerations as well as new data on clitics. Taken together, the contributions in this volume not only provide insight into the extremely complex nature of clitics, but also into derivations and structures in language that go beyond the study of clitics themselves.

“Overall, the volume’s breadth of issues and methodologies is notable. The interdisciplinary, cutting-edge formal approaches to the interfaces at which clitics reside make it well worth the read for those interested in clitic phenomena. Despite its limitations from a functionalist point of view, this volume is successful in its goal of offering diverse perspectives on clitics cross-linguistically, and it is recommended for linguists who work on the theoretical side of the syntax-morphology interface.”
