Abstract:
There are two bound pronominal sets on Tukang Besi verbs. One set, that which marks Ps, is more transparently related to the independent pronominal forms and is a clitic, not an affix. Despite this, I argue that it is in fact the more grammaticalized of the two bound pronominal sets. Just as the notion of 'markedness' can be shown to be decomposed into mutually contradictory defining conditions, I argue that the widely used notion of 'grammaticalization' is similarly conflicted.
