[Lingtyp] sources: p-word inside and smaller than g-word

Hey all,

I'm trying to gather sources on cases where researchers specifically
discuss elements or constructions whereby a p-word is inside a g-word.

( ... (...)p_word ... )gword

Woodbury calls these "unclitics" and Zúñiga calls these "anticlitics".
Another well known article by Bickel et al. argues that prefixes in
Chintang can be regarded as p-words.

Anyone have any recent studies to share on this? I'd be interested. I'm
specifically interested in researchers that take the time to explain why
their g-word in such cases should not be considered a phrase (a
"g-phrase"?). A related issue is why the p-word should not be considered a
p-stem or a smaller prosodic constituent à la Downing inter alia.


p.s. not interested in having a debate about whether these things are real,
just looking for sources. If you want to discuss whether such constructions
"exist" or whatever, I would appreciate it if you started this on a
different email chain.
