Description - Approaching Second by Aaron L. Halpern

This book focuses on a special type of pronouns and auxiliary verbs, known as clitics, which have a unique grammar. The goal of the book is to compare several different languages to see how they are similar and how they are different. The book is unique in providing a comparison of several scientific theories of grammar as applied to clitics. Each paper deals in some depth with clitics from a particular language or group of languages, including Sanscrit and Hittite, Old Spanish, Balkan Slavic, Old and Modern Germanic, and native Australian languages. Second Position Clitic and Related Phenomena is noteworthy to linguists concerned with the study of universal grammar and others with an established interest in clitics.
