Against the setting of this book, this chapter looks at the background of developments in phonological and morphological theory of the last forty-odd years, largely those arising from contributions by Morris Halle and his collaborators. The chapter shows that the Basque clitic system, with a three-way case distinction available among its clitics, abandons the full utilization of such distinctions in a specific morphosyntactic context, namely left-adjacency to the auxiliary root.

Keywords:   phonological theory, morphological theory, Morris Halle, Basque clitic system, morphosyntactic context, auxiliary root
