This paper begins with a presentation of a split in the morphosyntactic behavior of two suffixing subject pronominal paradigms in Turkish in section 1. In section 2, we argue that this split is a result of one paradigm consisting of postlexical clitics while the other is composed of lexical suffixes. To better appreciate the distinct morphosyntactic behavior of these two paradigms, we will present a brief overview of the historical development for such bipartite behavior in section 3. We wiJI then present an account of it in a lexicalist framework. namely Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar (HPSG). in section 4. A brief conclusion appears in section 5.
