7. Object clitic doubling constructions and topicality in Bulgarian
This paper discusses the phenomenon of clitic doubling as it is manifested in formal Bulgarian. It presents certain properties of clitic doubling constructions, including some rules describing clitic placement, examining the distinction between the object constituents in initial and final position on the one hand, and between clitic doubling and “left-dislocated” constructions on the other. On this basis, it then scrutinizes the interaction of clitic doubling with constituent order and information structure.
