In late Medieval Greek and many modern dialects, pronominal clitics are syntactically adjoined to an IP projection. In another set of dialects they have become syntactically adjoined to a verbal head. In the most innovating dialects (which include Standard Greek) they are agreement affixes. Extending the Fontana/Halpern clitic typology, we propose a trajectory of lexicalization from Xmaxclitics via X0clitics to lexical affixes. The evolution of clitic placement also reveals the rise of a composite functional projection ΣP.In late Medieval Greek and many modern dialects, pronominal clitics are syntactically adjoined to an IP projection.
