Abstract

The present paper investigates the phonological representation of stressed clitics in Argentine Spanish, building on the proposal of Colantoni and Cuervo (2013) that stressed clitics may be either affixes or independent words. This hypothesis is tested by comparing the acoustic characteristics (duration, pitch, intensity) of verbs followed by stressed clitics to verbs followed by stressed words and stressed affixes. The results indicate that stressed clitics pattern more like stressed affixes, leading to the conclusion that clitics are becoming more word internal.
