Book Information

   

Title: Aspects of the Theory of Clitics
Written By: Stephen R. Anderson
URL: http://www.oup.co.uk/isbn/0-19-927991-8
Series Title: Oxford Studies in Theoretical Linguistics
Description:

This is the first book to cover the grammar of clitics from all points of
view, including their phonology and syntax and relation to morphology. In
the process, it deals with the relation of second position clitics to
verb-second phenomena in Germanic and other languages, the grammar of
contracted auxiliary verbs in English, noun incorporation constructions,
and several other much discussed topics in grammar. Stephen Anderson
includes analyses of a number of particular languages, and some of these -
such as Kwakw'ala ("Kwakiutl") and Surmiran Rumantsch - are based on his
own field research. The study of clitics has broad implications for a
general understanding of sentence structure in natural language. Stephen
Anderson's clearly-written, wide-ranging, and original account will be of
wide interest to scholars and advanced students of phonology, morphology,
and syntax.
