Parametrizing second position effects in Slavic
Keywords:clitics, tense morphology, articles, South Slavic
This paper provides an account of the distribution of two types of clitics in South Slavic: second position (2P) and verb-adjacent cliticization. It attributes the variation in the position of clitics to the availability of tense morphology in the respective languages, arguing that verb-adjacent cliticization is possible only when the TP layer is projected. The analysis is proposed as an alternative to Runić’s (2013) account, which links verb-adjacency cliticization to the presence of articles.
