I present here the results of a quantitative analysis of weak object pronoun placement in Later Medieval Greek. The description that I provide concurs, in large part, with the conclusions of Mackridge (1993), but also introduces some new complexities and disproves certain previous assumptions. On the basis of these results, I evaluate the latest proposal that seeks to account for this pattern (Condoravdi & Kiparsky 2001) and demonstrate that, despite its advantages, this new account is founded on a controversial assumption, and it also fails to answer some of the more interesting questions raised by the data. I propose an alternative approach, which treats the variation as the result of analogical change.
