5.1 - Introduction to clitics

Anawanda has a rich inventory a clitic pronouns which are employed for cross-referencing of verb arguments. In fact, such cross-referencing is widespread, and clitics are present even when the referenced arguments are also encoded via stand alone noun phrases.

Besides a large number of personal clitics, employed for cross-referencing of direct and indirect objects, the language has a few non-personal clitics, which cross-reference local, temporal, modal and instrumental adjuncts.
