Abstract [en]

This paper investigates the prosodic structure of weak (stressless) function words in Persian within the framework of Prosodic Phonology. Weak function words in Persian are prosodic clitics that form phrases with the material following them (proclitics) or preceding them (enclitics). So far, only the prosody of enclitics has been studied in the literature. The present study proposes that, in Persian, enclitics are affixalclitics, while proclitics are free clitics. These proposals contribute to the findings in Prosodic Phonologythat prosodic categories can in fact be recursive and non-exhaustive.
