Abstract:
Throughout the discussion a concentration on the clisis in Masbatenyo is shown: the placement of clitics in relation to other nonclitics in the clause, the identification of the clitic distribution type, and the relative ordering of pronominal clitics within a cluster. Masbatenyo attests a mixture of post-initial and verb-adjacent position types. Certain complementizers can be clitic hosts, while others cannot. The clitic domain can either be COMP phrase or INFL phrase. An interaction of prosodic and, to a lesser extent, morphological factors in the ordering of clitic pronouns relative to each other is found when they co-occur in a clause. Finally, the domain of Masbatenyo clisis can be either prosodic or clausal.
