Kechagias, A 2014, 'The Syntax-IS Interface : On the functional discrepancies between Clitic Left Dislocation and ‘Bare Left Dislocation’ in Modern Greek' , in: Major Trends in Theoretical and Applied Linguistics , De Gruyter, pp. 353-368.
Only in CLLD does the dislocated DP perform the discourse function [Topic] partitioning the utterance into [Topic] + [Comment]; cliticless non-focal dislocated DPs are solely fronted [Ground] information that partition the utterance into [Ground] + [New]. In other words, the two constructions correspond to two different information packaging strategies and grammaticalise two distinct Information Structure interface rules.
