Clitics, Case Checking, and Causative Constructions.
Kansas Working Papers in Linguistics, v19 n1 p125-147 1994
This paper examines the distribution of third person pronominal clitics in Catalan causative constructions (CC), suggesting that an analysis of CC and cliticization crucially involving head-movement (verb incorporation and determiner incorporation) can explain the phenomena. Such an analysis can also explain the optionality of clitic climbing and the relation between cliticization and case. Contains 31 references. (MDM)
