This volume examines the behavior of clitics both in Italian and incertain
southern Italian dialects in order to show that, even within a single
language, clitics exhibit different properties. Monachesi argues against
the existence of a special class 'clitics' whose elements exhibit variable
behavior. Instead, she decomposes and assimiliates their properties to
those of well established categories. Motivations are thus provided for
treating Italian object clitics as affixes. It is shown that both their
morphosyntactic and their phonological behavior argue in favor of this
assumption. Under this view, a lexicalist analysis is proposed which takes
into account the phonological, morphological and syntactic properties of
Italian clitics.
