Development of Word Order of Preterit Auxiliary Clitics in the Old Czech Bibles
Abstract The article deals with the development of word-order of the preterit auxiliary in the Old Czech. According to the comprehensive works dealing with Czech historical syntax Gebauer (1929); Trávníček (1935, 1956), it can be assumed that the originally accented forms of AUXP changed into permanent clitic forms during the Old-Czech period. The paper is based on data gained from the Old Czech Bible translations (Gospel of Matthew). The aim of the paper is to detect all possible word-order positions of these auxiliary forms in analyzed texts and to explain them. The attention is especially paid to the following issues: 1. Are the forms of the preterit auxiliary in Old-Czech Bibles clitic? 2. Which clausal position do they occupy?
