So too is the boundary between clitics and full words: e. Oxford University Press, Mostly, clitics are prosodically deficient in that they fail to meet prosodic minimality conditions.
For instance, unlike prosodic words, clitics need not consist of a full vowel. Moreover, clitics often exhibit different phonological behaviour from other categories In recent analyses, it has been proposed to accommodate clitics in one of the categories 'word' or ' affix.
As for pronominal clitics, one of the main problems is whether they are arguments as proposed by Kayne and many others, or whether they are functional heads as proposed by, e. Birgit Gerlach and Janet Grijzenhout, Introduction.
