First person strong pronouns in spoken French
A case study in cliticization
In this article it will be argued that both from a syntactic and a prosodic point of view, the so-called disjoined or tonic pronouns of Modern Spoken French are neither necessarily disjoined nor stressed elements any more. Based on syntactic and phonetic corpus data, I will show that especially the first-person form moi is currently undergoing a process of cliticization.
