Summary/Abstract: The systems of clitics in Bulgarian and Czech are compared. Both phonological (prosodic) and syntactic features are taken into consideration to capture the main differences between Czech, which is – mainly – a Wackernagel-position language, and Bulgarian, which is – basically – verb-adjacent. The theoretical framework for the comparison is dependency syntax. The study is divided into four parts. In Part I some open theoretical questions concerning the concept of clitics as well as of their general properties are discussed; in Part II the author will describe the main distribution rules of clitics in Bulgarian as compared to Czech; in Part III she will deal with more special cases of placement of clitics in both languages, and finally, in Part IV some typical cases „on the border“ between affixes and clitics will be mentioned.
