Clitic-Doubled Arguments

  • Joseph Aoun
Part of the Studies in Natural Language and Linguistic Theory book series (SNLT, volume 45)

Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to investigate the phenomena which have been regrouped under the titles of ‘clitic doubled constructions’, ‘clitic doubling’, or ‘argument doubling’. These phenomena have been the subject of extensive discussions in contemporary linguistic studies. I believe that their interest ultimately resides in the fact that they open a window on the formation of arguments; they allow us to better understand how argument structures are formed and how they are syntactically projected.
