In this paper I deal with clitic doubling and address the general question of a syntactic treatment of this phenomenon. In a nutshell the idea I am putting forward is that clitic doubling at least in a language like Standard Modern Greek does not have to depend on any special syntactic schema or configuration. Rather I argue the clitic is a mere reflection of features of the DP node that is selected by a verbal head that have been copied and moved higher up in the structure. In this light I propose that Clitic Doubling should be seen as a parameterized version of the object A- movement/A-scrambling-to-the-TP-domain operation as found in a variety of languages.
