Abstract

This paper argues that Romanian auxiliary and pronominal clitics are phrasal affixes subject to a set of conflicting PF alignment constraints that are responsible for the clustering, rigid ordering, and overall positioning in a clause of both so-called verbal clitics (in Romanian) and second-position clitics (in South Slavic). Evidence that auxiliary and pronominal clitics are morphological entities comes from their syntactic inertness while evidence for their phrasal affix status comes from their moveability and the fact that they do not pattern like word-level affixes in Romanian.
