Workshop on Clitics and Syntactic Typology

In June 2010, I organized a workshop on clitics and syntactic typology in Moscow. The workshop’s goal is to combine studies in two related yet different fields – clitic theories and syntactic typology.

The papers presented at the workshop focused on such issues as clitic clusterization, Barrier typology, clitic doubling and its links to argument structure, case and and agreement marking, diachronic trends in the development of clitic systems, contact-induced development of clitic systems, clitic reduplication.

The abstracts and presentations will soon be available.
