Every aspect of grammatical analysis requires that we propose a specific approach in order to detect common patterns which will help us to better understand the problem at hand.

As we are all aware, as we grow from child to adult, our language capabilities also pass through different stages of development that in the end we become more aware of language rules which in return help us to better articulate words. Clitics are some of the most unique language elements that require a more profound approach considering that it is very easy to mistake them as being affixes, thus resulting in various errors in their usage.

Our diploma thesis will try to explain this subject by clarifying what clitics actually are? How they are formed? How they differ from other parts of speech or how they can interact with those parts? And, why we make certain errors while trying to pronounce them?

The study contains examples from errors that are made by the Albanian Learners of English. 

We hope to have provided enough data and analysis to properly exemplify the subject matter, and believe it will be of benefit to anyone who wants to study English Grammar in general and Clitization in particular.

Keywords: clitics, proclitics, enclitics, affixes, verbal clitics,
