Title:Binukid pronominal clisis
Abstract:This language attests two paradigms of bound personal pronouns as well as one optionally bound and one free pronominal set. Of particular interest is a prohibition in Binukid on co-occurrences of pronouns from the two obligatorily bound paradigms. To avoid this situation, one pronoun takes the form of its counterpart from a different set. The choice of which of the two pronouns undergoes this substitution -- as well as the order of two bound pronouns -- depends on a person hierarchy. Roughly, this is first > second > third person (formalized using the features [±me] and [±you]). Whichever pronoun is lower on this hierarchy is also ordered second in the cluster. Not all combinations of pronouns undergo this phenomenon; if the two pronouns differ in number of syllables, then it does not occur. Other issues discussed in the study include adverbial bound forms and the position of the pronoun cluster relative to other elements in the clause.
