about this item

This linguistics study uses a cognitive/functionalist framework to analyze medieval Florentine and Tuscan texts in order to understand why the accusative-dative and dative-accusative order changed in Old Florentine clitic clusters. The book begins with an overview of the origins of Romance personal clitic pronouns, then introduces the cognitive/functional approach and uses it to analyze the alternation between the accusative-dative and dative-accusative orders in 14th century Florentine.
