On clitics in Earlier Egyptian

Abstract [en]

This paper provides an overview of themorpho-syntax, semantics, and evolution of Earlier Egyptian clitics – i.e. phonologically “defective” expressions that require a host to which they may attach. A broad formal characterisation thereof is followed by a more detailed look at the syntax of clitics with respect to their hosts as well as within phrases and clauses. After this a semantic division of Earlier Egyptian clitics is outlined, and the possible status of the so-called suffix-pronouns and the passive element t(w)/tw is reconsidered. Finally, the diachronic fate of the Earlier Egyptian clitic system is considered and proposed to represent a symptom of a more general language-historical trend observable in Egyptian.
