Review:


"This book comes as a breath of fresh air. It is very clearly written, and is comprehensive in every way: it deals with a broad range of language types; it gives very clear comparisons with alternative theories; and it addresses all the important syntactic and phonological implications of the theory. It is a great feat to be able to pull all of these issues together and explain them in a way that is actually enjoyable to read."--Margaret Speas, University of Massachusetts, Amherst


"Important and much needed.... An invaluable contribution to our understanding of the grammar of clitics. By effectively employing several components of the grammar to jointly account for the grammar of clitics, it seriously casts doubt on approaches that promote single component perspectives on this phenomenon. This study will undoubtedly be a cornerstone in any future debates on this important topic."--Journal of Word Structure
