Network Core Mechanisms of Exponence

Auger, Julie (1993)

Abstract

Auger presents linguistic evidence which suggests that Colloquial French (CF) is participating in what has often been described as a trend toward head-marked clauses in the pronominal clisis of the Romance languages. Auger summarizes some of the morphological arguments that show that Colloquial French pronominal clitics are better analyzed as agreement markers than as clitics. Syntactic and morphological criteria are used to argue in favour of a prefix rather than a clitic, or independent-word analysis. Auger reviews, with respect to the Colloquial French facts, the set of morphological criteria proposed by Zwicky and Pullum (1983) to distinguish between clitics and affixes.
