Double verbal forms in old Italian dialects. Fragments of an Italo-romance position rule

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: clitics and cliticisation; morphological redundancy or overabundance; verbal morphology of Italian dialects

The author analyses a number of multiple verbal forms that characterise many ancient and modern Italian dialects in terms of an original opposition between clitic and tonic forms, an opposition which seems to be reflected in the relative position preference found in medieval texts.
